A Promise of Plums

promise of plums

The year before last, the plum tree got a severe haircut.

I mean… like a No.2 all over…

…which meant that it spent most of 2013 in a state of shock.

Just before you start clamouring at me, I must defend myself.  The poor plum was in an awful state and had long been growing in the wrong direction, leading to poor quality plums, which were all growing right at the top of the tree and nowhere else!

However, this year’s blossom is looking incredible…

…and we all know what blossom equals:


So I am hoping that the tree has forgiven me and that we are in for a bountiful plum harvest later on in the year.

I promise I’ll save you some plum jam.
