Plump plum

The single plum on my oldest plum tree is ready for picking … Earlier in the year when the branches were littered with small star-like blossoms, I anticipated armfuls of beautiful fruits. The flowers all withered and blew off the branches and I tried to feel optimistic for at least the tree had blossomed, which it had failed to do on previous years. Then a few weeks ago I noticed just one solitary plum swaying from one of its back branches … here is the plum. I have placed it next to a peach and an ordinary plum and to show its actual size I have also placed a one penny piece as part of the picture.

Plums are one of my favorite fruits. I can't wait for them to come into season and when they do I guess you could say, I overeat.

Only one plum? It looks like a good one, though.
