We have 4 thundercloud plums in our back yard, but these look so much more impressive. It was pouring rain when I shot these at about 4:00 p.m., hence the dark quality. These do not bear plums though. Their leaves are the colour of plums, a really cool dark dusty purple.
The daffodils are coming up in the valley as well, and are being harvested for the annual Daffodil Parade in a couple of weeks.
Spring has sprung!
