Plums by happypat

Plums

Our neighbours are away on holiday & we are so tempted to nip over the fence & rescue some of these beautiful plums dangling on that tree.

Such a shame they are going to waste & the wasps having a field day!

Three good things:
1. We have resisted up to now to trespass.
2. Slightly cooler today & I was happy to get out my warmer tops! I do prefer winter clothes!
3. I have made my signature oat biscuits for the first time for weeks....feels good to have the biscuit tin full.
they NEED to be picked...hahaha go one..eat eat and eat some more...I won't tell!

I agree with Boo...go for it! Looks to be plenty for you and the wasps. This is such a beautiful look at your neighborhood. Such a charming house in the background. And I love your TGT, especially #2. I cannot wait for cooler weather to arrive in my part of the world. Still sultry summertime here.

@huvesaker @peggysirk I would hate to get caught as these are the only neighbours that would bother if we did pinch any......sods law they would catch us, we have discussed it but they might have cameras! 😳😨

@peggysirk Oh winter clothes all the time for me Peggy!

If they are Victoria plums - my favourite- I would be hard pressed to leave them to the wasps. Are your neighbours so mean spirited to begrudge you a few plums?

Such a waste if they are not picked.. i say pick them.. stew some up for their return.. surely they woild be grateful.. lovely looking house..

I don’t think they would mind you picking the ripe plums, so much better than them rotting on the ground! We are still unbearably hot here, the fewer clothes the better!

Hard to be good sometimes.

They are back tonight....too late!😩. You are all very naughty !

@pamknowler Yes I think so ...we have had a few problems with them over the years...nothing major but they soon fall out with us all down the lane! Do t think twice about climbing over the fence to our side if they see something they want to look at....we talk but are wary!

A shame that the plums are wasting but I guess you know what’s best to keep everyone happy... nice image.

Lovely thatch. Shame about the plums.

@beryl @dide @mave

Yes very tempting, we love Victoria plums...will be interesting to see now they are home how long before they pick them!
August 21st, 2019  
@happypat Or if they give you any!
August 21st, 2019  
@mave Ha ha true...I will tell you now they won’t!!
August 21st, 2019  
A lovely tree so full of plums. What a shame you didn’t manage to scrump any before they returned.

Beautiful landscape shot

Mmmm...really? They would miss just a few?? I hope that someone is able to enjoy them.
August 22nd, 2019  
I am sure they wouldn't mind if you nipped over and pinched a few, they will only go to waste. I would be there in a shot with my basket.
August 22nd, 2019  
Nip over pat . Harry will scoop them up
August 22nd, 2019  
Noone will ever know...and it would save them having to clear up when they come back!
August 22nd, 2019  
What a beautiful house - and what a tree-full of plums! Sinful to let them go to waste!

Beautiful shot. Shame about the plums.

@huvesaker Ha ha, Boo! Just imagine it! What a picturesque cottage! Pity they aren't of similar nature! Oh, well there are often neighbours like that! We are lucky - all our neighbours are our friends!

@maggiemae We all get on really well down our lane but I think it’s fair to say we all think one house is slightly off the radar..... I like to keep the peace!
What a good job none of our neighbours read these comments! By the way it’s not the ones on the thatched, that is on the other side of the road!
August 22nd, 2019  
They taste better when they are scrumped! I would have gone like a shot but made sure I left a healthy covering on the tree for them and the birds - and to cover my tracks. Haha!. And if they were nice they would have had some jam or stewed fruit.

Maybe they will come home soon and share them with you. Shame that they did not offer before they left.
