Plums

Plums play an important role in my childhood recollections. My Great Uncle Collie had a grove of plum trees outside his farmhouse and as a result we had bags of plums in the house all fall. We were sent off to school with a few plums in our pocket as a treat for recess. Not much of a treat when you’re in grade two and all you want is a Wagon Wheel or a store-bought cookie, but that’s beside the point. Every day… two plums in the pocket. So the sight and taste of plums really bring me back and say fall, home and warmth.

The variety of colours of plums can range from deep purple, to ruby red, to bright orangey yellow but most commonly it is a rich reddish purple that is a true plum. Get ready for some plum inspiration, or plumspiration.
