Plants I'm Growing: Pink Flowering Plum--Prunus Mume (January 24, 2013)

I belatedly note that the pink flowering plum at the front of the house started blooming on January 20. This little tree has been suffering from an infestation of scale, so it produced very few buds, but the buds that are there have mostly opened. The white plum (same species, Prunus mume) is now pretty much in full bloom.
