'Princess Kay' plum tree


One of the first trees to bloom in the spring are the plum trees.
Princess Kay is a double flowered selection of Canadian wild plum, (Prunus nigra) discovered by Catherine (Kay) and Robert Nyland in the wild in Itasca County, Minnesota.


The orioles fought over control of the tree as they must value the nectar.


A butterfly sneeks in for its share.
