'emerald beaut' plum

the plums are in bloom.  the 'emerald beaut', in particular, is putting on quite a show...and seems pretty popular with the locals.

there was a lady bug in almost every blossom on the tree.

several honey bees visiting had trouble getting into the blossoms with all the lady bugs in the way.

also saw one of the biggest bumble bees i've ever seen, maybe a queen recently emerged from hibernation and looking for breakfast.

very cool.
