Plum Blossom

Not just my wife’s affectionate nickname for me, but also a flower on a tree.

I had the pleasure of wandering through a plum orchard in bloom this morning. No plums yet: you’ll have to wait for January or February if you’re looking for actual fruit, but in the meantime, walking between the walls of pure, bright white blossom in the spring sunshine was quite the experience.

Plum blossom is apparently very short lived. Blink and you’ll miss it – if your blink takes about 4 or 5 days. And, in case you are wondering, this looks like a decent season for plums, if the blossom is anything to go by.
