A Slice of My Life

Last week I posted a photo of the red plum tree ready to burst into bloom. The next day it was covered in snowy blossoms. Here's how it looked over the weekend.

The native bees, wasps, and assorted other flying insects are always overjoyed when the plum trees bloom. They are among the very first flowers to provide food to our local pollinators. By the time the apple trees bloom, we'll have butterflies too. The swallowtails in particular love the apple blossoms.

This post has been shared at some of my favorite blog hops.


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

  1. Truly beautiful Kathi! I love it that you've kept track of the bloom time consistently for 10 years. Do you do record other growth information as well?

    1. Some, but not as in depth as the date the plum trees bloom. :-)
