Plum blossom, so lovely, so fleeting, this photograph was taken exactly a week ago when we decided to start this blog,
The Orchard Year.
The smell of pollen was heavy on the air and there was a froth of blossom all around.
Already it's gone and the petals lie like snow upon the grass, snow in springtime.
But the fruit has set and we can look forward to delicious mouth watering plums in just a few months time.
