D is for Damson

as in plums. I took this photo when I lived in Chicago. Walking through Hyde Park to catch the train each day, I always passed one house with a small plum tree next to the front gate. Season by season I'd watch them grow from blossoms to these beauties. Then one day, just like that, when I'd walk by to admire them, they'd be gone! Probably already in jars on the counter.

Oh, I thought you were going to say, that one day you'd walk and just reach over to pluck one! Too bad you didn't.

You have far more self-control than I, I'm sure temptation would have gotten the best of me and I'd have boarded my train with that beautiful (but incriminating) shade of purple all over my lips and chin! :-)

I don't think we have this variety where I live. I'm only familiar with the red or black ones.
