Plum Tree near my office, Seattle

Around mid morning the clouds parted and I ran outside to capture this plum tree with all it's buds. We are expecting cold weather for the next few days so I think it may be a week or so before this row of trees blooms, but clearly they are almost ready to do so. They always put on a good show and actually procduce plums. I have seen a local group come out and pick for the food bank, but more often than not the plums end up on the ground for us to walk around. I hope the group comes back again this year.

Edit: crop
Beautiful picture and framing!

It was great weather yesterday and felt like spring is not far away. I like the deep colors in this. It's really a pretty picture.

Super spring-like bloom. Just waiting to happen.

Do you mean a local group of people come to collect them?

@ellida Yes, some volunteer group, and then the plums go to the food bank to be given to those who are hungry.

Oh, you can already start to wait for a spring - our winter has hardest days now - we had this morning -32 Celsius / -26 F and it will continue still a week at least. But our location is so much more northern.
