Raining Plums...

A have a young Victoria Plum tree in my garden that wore a breathtaking gown of blossom earlier this year,and has now blessed me with it's fruits.However due to the never ending rain of late, I returned home from a little jaunt to be greeted with a carpet of plums at the foot of my Victoria which had mostly split.So I hastily
picked the precious remaining plums and decided to put them to use.
As I've mentioned before I am a well meaning but often calamitous cook so I decided to play it safe a make a crumble. 

I have to admit the crumble was a bit on the chunky side due to my impatience but it tasted lovely.Just what you need on a rainy day!
Did you know that
The plum tree has an exceptionally beautiful blossom and so it has come to symbolize spring championing over winter, and virtue and courage triumphing over tribulations.  In Japan, the tree is connected with youth and its innocence.“The Ilustrated Book of Signs and Symbols,”Dorling Kindersley Limited,London, 2004. 
What more can you want?a pretty display in the spring and wonderful fruits in late summer.Well,one thing I would like would be less rain!
Take care
