Plum Blossoms

There are 3 main types of trees that flower first in Memphis, Tennessee: plum, pear, and red bud. The plum is by far my favorite, and the rarest of the three. Plums often don't grow well here because we usually don't have cold enough winters for plums, but these little trees at a gas station close to my house have been alive and well for several years now. When my boyfriend and I stopped to get something yesterday, I took the opportunity to take a few photos of the blossoms before they fall.
