Something's ripening...

We planted a Shiro plum tree our first spring in Vancouver, and now every summer I look forward to the harvest. This year is shaping up to a bumper crop. The tree bloomed at the right time in April (as opposed to February the past two years), the bees came, and the branches are now loaded with ripening fruit. Here's how things looked a few days ago:

Caution: Plums were greener than they looked in the photo. But I checked this morning, and the first one or two are nearly ripe. I'm hoping tomorrow will be the big day. Let the eating begin!
