Spring-The Season of Adventure


Learning about the land we live in is one of the great adventures of our life on the farm and each year the advent of Spring sparks anew this adventure. We do learn a few things over the Winter months, but these topics usually involve finding new ways to enjoy our small home away from the wet and cold. It is when the temperature begins to rise that a sense of renewal begins and the cold, gray trees once more clothe themselves with beautiful green leaves and showy flowers.

It was one such tree that caught our attention this past week. We hadn’t noticed it before, but off on the edges of our far pasture we saw the beautiful white dome of a flowering tree. Neither of us know a lot about trees to be able to look at any given specimen and know what it is right away. What could be said about this little tree was that it is shares beautiful tufts of tiny, white, very fragrant blooms.

We studied the different aspects of the tree and then set to work on trying to figure out what kind of tree it is. I stress once more that we are certainly not arborists and could be mistaken, but it is our opinion that this little gem is a Mexican Plumb (Prunus Mexicana).

Here are two sites we used to see if we could figure this out:
