Sunday Picture Post: Cross-bred Plums

The wild plum cross-pollinates freely with the orchard-grown varieties… greengage, damson, you name it. So I’m not going to name this one thing or another.

Damson or Bullace… or is it Sloe? 19 August 2019

Not yet ripe: 31 July 2019

I had to include this. Love the colours.

  1. The fruits look really great. How are you? Has autumn begun at your place?
    My exams are over, and they have been quite good. I hope you are having a great Sunday.

    Oh dear. I must admit I’m not a plum person LOL But they have a certain charm. Great shots though 😊 The unripened ones are a beautiful colour!
