Plum Blossoms

Of course the cherry blossoms are here, but so are the plum blossoms! Somehow they don’t get as much attention as the cherries in Spring, and often get confused for sakura, but the plums are equally beautiful ~ both the American wild plum blossoms and the Japanese ume. Here are a few from the streets of my neighborhood.

If you want to see cherry blossoms, here’s my Seattle Sakura post from last year.
