Plums!

This summer has provided a bounty of orchard fruit in the Vancouver area. Flower production and pollination must have had an A+ year. Many older properties have apple, cherry, pear or plum trees that are more or less neglected, and much fruit ends up as above. Fortunately there is an active local fruit salvage organization that collects the bounty and passes it on to the food bank.

Today, Festival of the Trees #39 is up at Arboreality. It is one of the richest editions yet, with a theme of things hidden (or lurking) among the trees. It's too much to consume at a single sitting, so drop by a few times and find yourself some plums.
