PLUM GORGEOUS



The beginning of Spring.
A few plum blossoms are popping out
since we have had a few days of nice sunny weather.
I just don't know what's going to happen to all the beautiful flowers.
The weather gurus are saying the temperatures are going
to only go as high as 40 F. and we may even have a dusting of snow at our home.
Its just too crazy.
We may have only a little fruit again this year.
That makes me sad.
But....
Enjoy the picture and I'll keep you updated.
As always enlarging the photo will show more detail.

Sue, last year we also had a strange spring - almost non-existent. It was like we went from winter almost straight to summer. This year we have had a four-month summer so far. Autumn should begin soon - Dave

year before last we had few blooms on the avacado tree, lots of fruit. last year we had millions of blooms and only 5 fruit. hope you get lots of plums and this lonely little bloom is beautiful

Pretty little blossom and a sign of spring to come.

I spotted my first plum blossom this week on my tree. I snapped a quick pic, then this morning I took more photos, this time of plum blossoms frosted with snow.

Lifting its face to the sun . . . here's hoping your blossoms survive and abundant fruit is in your future. A happy spring photo.

A gorgeous flower! IT will be a while before we see any but it is a treat to see it.
have a wonderful weekend!

Ginny said...

That's a plum blossom? Don't think I've ever seen one! I hope nothing around here starts to bloom yet, because it will get cold and then might kill it!

Ann said...

soon you will have cherry blossoms too?

Spring has sprung for you?

Coy said...

Sue, thanks for stopping by! I am as guilty as you for not taking enough time to visit old friends :)

I do think I will have to wait a while before we have any fruit blooms here in Pa, just got 6 inches of new snow Tuesday but its about gone now.
