I was telling a friend this weekend that I hoped my one of my neighbors would trim their plum trees so that I could have a few branches of plum blossoms. Well, yesterday a neighbor pruned his tree and offered the branches to anyone walking by. I got enough for three huge vases – and my neighbor still had enough to pass out to other neighbors, AND enough for four huge bundles (which he and his brother tied up and loaded into a car).
My house now smells lightly of spring. Abundance is a nice thing.
