Blossoms: plums

I took a trip to the west of Tokyo with Rurousha in Mid March to see Ome's beautiful plums. Plums are usually solitary trees; they're not usually planted en masse the way that cherry trees are.  This is one of the notable exceptions. Kairakuan in Mito is another.  Plum pox has infected the trees though and all will be cut down at the end of the season.
