The Plum Tree Race
Ok, the race is on.
I have two cherry trees in my garden and this year although the branches were arched with the weight of fruit, I enjoyed TWO cherries.
I love cherries, but decided to wait until they were just perfectly ripe before picking.
Every day I went out and looked at them, thinking perhaps tomorrow.
Then one day both trees were completely stripped of fruit.
The early birds got my cherries. :(
No one will have my plums!
Unless I say so.
I love plum jam and plum chutney, plum crumble and plum...... well, anything actually.
I sat under the plum tree today and now I'm watching those plums like a hawk.
I just need the sun to shine on these little beauties, turn them pink, and then - they will be mine!!!
