At the top of our garden we have a lovely old wild plum tree that Steven pruned and tidied up a couple of years ago. The other day I was wandering around with my camera and saw that this tree was full of blossoms. The branches are dark and covered with lichen which makes the blossoms stand out beautifully against them. We do get plums from the wild trees around us, so with the heavy blossoms this year I really hope we have a good crop. They’re so delicious, though small, as they are lovely, warm and sharp sweet when you pick them with the sun on them. We had a fairly hard frost a couple of days ago, after I took this, but I hope it didn’t suffer too much. Time will tell. At least we have had a good amount of bees around to pollinate them. Is there any season more rich with promise than a Canadian – Nova Scotian – Spring? You can practically stand and watch things growing in front of you. Enjoy your day, friends. I send you all a bear hug! A flower a Day #248
