In mid-August, the red plum tree that was living here when I moved into the house had hundreds of bunches of flower buds waiting to burst open. At of the end of August a few were opening and on their way making the bees happy.
Now the tree is blooming in delicate fragile white flowers – in the month when we get our most notoriously strong wind gusts. So far most flowers have hung on.
This is one wonderful example of Spring springing glorious change!
