52 Weeks of Color: Plums

52 Weeks of Color: Plums [no. 1]

My grandmother used to have these plum trees in her front yard in Utah. They acted as a divider between her and her neighbor's yard. I remember, when I was a kid, laying in their shade in the summer, grateful that it was only 100 degrees there. I remember eating the plums, and thinking the super dark blue-purple color of their skin was one of the most lovely things there was.

A couple years ago my mom told me that the plum trees had gotten cut down. Funny how something like that can feel like a cut tie to your childhood, a death to be mourned.
