Blooming!

Yep, it’s finally happened!  The plum tree is in full bloom.  Not quite as many flowers this year as last, but then again we pruned much of the tree back when we picked the fruit last year.  As it is, if the weather doesn’t somehow damage the blossoms, we should have a fairly bountiful harvest.

I wonder what type of butterfly this is?

The bees have busy buzzing around the blossoms nonstop for the past couple of days.  Can’t wait to see how many plums we’ll get this year.

The spring has been wonderful for fruit trees so far this spring here in Michigan.  It has been mild, just rainy enough, and a bit warmer than usual, perfect for growing fruit, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
