I have a flowering plum tree in my front yard. It blooms early every year which is why I have it. Sunday the grand-kids came over and noticed that birds where picking the blooms of the my tree! Unbelievable. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of such a thing. We’ll I grabbed the camera and took a few pictures of this years blooms before they all disappear. I wondered why I had so many blooms laying around on the ground.
