One of the first fruit trees to blossom, their flowers are much anticipated. The landscape here is full of prune trees, semi wild or just helped along by grateful foragers and homesteaders in this rural landscape. In March, the landscape is dotted with trees and bushes white with flowers. We have about 15 prune trees in our patch, some flower later, some earlier, but its all over within a few weeks. Only the larger blue damsons flower later, and they also fruit later.
