April spring blossoms

As autumn started this year a blustery storm stripped our plum tree of its dying autumn leaves.

A few weeks later we started seeing new buds, white blossoms and fresh green leaves appearing… Our poor plum tree doesn’t know what season it is!

This autumn has been uncommonly warm, and while it’s tempting to point the finger at climate change, the blame probably rests with the El NiƱo weather pattern we’ve been having.

I just hope our plum tree has enough reserves left to survive the winter and blossom again next spring.
