Backyard Plum

I like plums and how convenient having plum trees in the backyard. The deer must think so also. They usually rest their hooves on the fence and stand on their hind legs to eat the plums. Spitting the pits out on our lawn as they munch. This year they didn't pay a lot of attention to the fruit. I was most pleased!

I grew up in the midwest. Flat with some small hills.... One year when I was small we visited Boulder, CO. I remember the mountains and how beautiful. We began vacationing in the Black Hills and then the Grand Tetons. I was convinced I would some day live in the mountains and here I am. I love this view, the town I live in and the smell of the fresh mountain air in the morning.

Fall is in the air. Most of the days are still in the high 70's low 80's but the nights it cools down and there is definately a change coming. I hate limbo....especially between late summer and fall. The earth is dry and so everything is brown. Once fall is in full swing and the rain starts to fall a bit the trees change color and then I fully appreciate the season.
