Gloria's Plums

Love how the single leaf is trying to shelter the plums like a hen's wings over her eggs! I was blessed to gather plums from a tree in Gloria's back yard. I was there to photograph eggs in a nest for a project and when I turned and saw her plum tree heavy with fruit it took my breath away! The tree was not large and it was so full of fruit that it actually looked purple, maybe more Mediterranean blue than purple.
