The plum trees are blooming and the flowers are so fragrant and beautiful. This is one of the plum trees in my yard and it is so good to see the blossoms out and smell the fragrance. Hopefully there will be a lot of plums this year. For now I will just enjoy its beauty and fragrance. Do you have fruit trees?

When I was growing up we had a plum tree on the farm. One year it produced an over abundance of plums. We canned a lot of them and ate so many we didn't want anymore. So they made plum pie to try to get us to eat them. I think that was the only time we were allowed to eat all the pie we wanted to. But that got old, too. We gave plenty away. We did not have any visitors for a long time because they didn't want to take home anymore plums. (Ok, I don't remember if the part about the visitors is true but we had plums coming out of our ears.)
