The First Fruit Blossoms

The plum trees are blooming! Here in Hickery Holler the 2 plum trees are always the first to bloom. We worry that they will get damaged by a late frost or storm but we usually always have atleast a few plums. Last year we had a bumper crop so we will keep our fingers crossed that our cold weather is indeed over. Meanwhile it never seems like it is officially spring until the fruit trees start to blossum.  The bees converge on the blooms like they are starving from a long winter without nectar and always insure a good pollination.
