The Spring is here, the sap is rising and my Plums are looking good. This one is a Blackthorn. Took pics with a black and a white background.

And a Greengage, raised from seed and planted in the garden. It's a wonderful time is Spring. Can't wait to taste my plums, later in the year.

Hello Mario. I like the virtual very much. I haven't done anything to this tree for a couple of years. My intention is to let it flower, then give it a good pruning. This tree is very strong and at the end of May I will leaf prune and then wire.

Loverly set of plums on you, Will What a Face I like Mario's take on it too - it tidies it up without losing too much of its wildness. Dave

I like the trunk. I have been trying to figure out what to do with a crab apple of mine, something along these lines could very well be the answer. Any chance I could see a couple more sides of this one? Thanks.

Hi Wil,
Very good blackthorn you got there.
Did you work on the deadwood? I appreciate it's age very much.
IMHO, This is going to be a great tree with a great future.How tall is it?

Will a really beautiful piece of work here. extremely inspiring as to what can be done with such a trunk. IM assuming this is your work or did you dig it like this? Meaning the shari. We have many wild plum here that are just waiting to be collected. cheers

Pascal. Yes it's Prunus Spinosa. Other names are Blackthorn and Sloe.

Dave. So glad you like my Plums.

Pavel. Thanks for your kind words.

Rob. I don't like weeds in my pots either but they have a persistant habit.

Faisal. This pot was a spoil from my kiln and will be changed in the near future.

Austin. I will post some more pics for you tomorrow.

Jeremy and Antonio. This tree came from the same building site as my English Elm with the deadwood. Yes I created the shari, some years ago and then left the tree to bulk up. The carving was done 2 years ago.

Thanks Pascal and Neil. It's also worth mentioning that the bark on this tree was smooth when collected. Blackthorn seem to bark up quite nicely in a pot situation

Hey Will!
How do damsons differ from sloe? The reason I ask is that near where I live I’m sure there are damson growing in a hedge alongside sloe trees. I’ve tasted the larger fruit of the perceived damson and found it to be a little more edible than that of the sloe which is far too bitter and dry. How do you get a positive ID? Many thanks for your help. Smile
