Long Beach Plums

I bought some lovely beach plum jam last summer. While enjoying it I thought, "It would be nice to  make my own beach plum jam. I'll have to remember to look for the plum blossoms in the spring, so I know where to find beach plums." I spotted the telltale white blossoms along Long Beach this weekend.
There are clumps of white blossoms.
Look here for a beach plum harvest.

  1. I love the first blossoms on the trees..what an artist He is:)

  2. Such a lovely sight, those blossoms. Makes me want to make jam, which I have never done. It must be beautiful right now in the Hamptons!
