    This is the story of the plum tree in our front garden.
    On 24 April it developed the first flower buds, which gradually opened, one by one, three days later, to be in full bloom on 1 May, and that was when our front garden hummed and hummed, since both plum trees, the red and the green one, were full of bees and bumble bees on the flowers, flying to the blossoms and away to the next. Only a day later, there was "petal snow" all over the path and the blossoms turned old. Only two weeks later, the first small fruit are beginning to show.
    Here's the photo story then:

    Hope you like?
    This is for my 11.000th post.
    (A pity that even Picturetrail made this collage so small ... eventually I will have to show you the individual pictures in a larger size, I think).

    Neat idea, and great execution. I like the pics, and they work well in the collage style

    I feel it was not so wise to create the collage ... I had better show you the individual pics... :( This is no good as small as it is :cry:

    Good idea but I think you are right in that the pics are too small to see really. I thought maybe they were clickable for larger versions. I have also just planted a plum tree along with a cherry tree....I also have apple and pear + an indoor orange tree. Alas my plum tree has no leaves yet so I have this to look forward to.

    Now the larger version are up ... the long collage had not been the wisest of ideas after all ... but well, that is repaired now.

    #3 is interesting. Almost looks like a red butterfly on there. I like how the light seeps through to illuminate the delicate veins of the leaves. #5 says to me "so long and thanks for all the pollen!" Sorry, bad Douglas Adams reference.:blushing:
