Edit: not plum blossoms at all! They are peaches! (probably)
I want to make a local calendar that isn’t based on the movement of celestial bodies but on key actions of plants and animals.
If I were to do something mad like that, my calendar might start with the Mexican Plum. At least I -think- this is a plum tree. I am not entirely certain because I don’t remember this particular tree producing fruit last year and nearly all the pictures I could find of Mexican Plums showed white blossoms that were a bit smaller than these. As always I welcome correction if I am in error.
As the first large plant in full blossom it was no surprise to see honey bees swarming. No native bees though.
Here’s a shot that shows various flowering stages
