Lovely, doesn’t it do you good to see it?
It certainly does, nature is rather wonderful.
Looks just like my wild plum, lovely!
I am never sure if this should be called wild plum or wild damson, my mum always makes jam from these and labels it wild damson and so I have always called it that. I have tried to search the differences but I am still not sure!
What colour is your fruit? Mine is yellow.
Bluish/purple, the colour of a sloe, I have read that there can be wild hybrids too.
Such pretty blossoms show promise for a good harvest… and plenty of jam! 😉
I certainly hope so, my mum makes another ‘High Dumpsy Dearie’ Jam with a mix of autumn fruits, I can definitely recommend that one.
Beautiful sign of spring.
After a very wet winter, the spring blossom is very welcome indeed. I hope temperatures warm up for you soon.
I damsons, they are nice and sour, good for jams and stews.
They certainly are. I read on New Hampshire Garden Solutions latest blog that if cooked really carefully Ostrich fern fiddleheads are edible, that made me think of you having just read your green blog.
Beautiful and precious blossoms. A real sign of spring.
Yes, this time last year we were just heading into another snowy phase, hopefully this Spring will stay sprung!
