Cherries or Plums?

Any idea which one's are cherries and which one's are plums?
Jim and I know! 
......Hazard a guess!.....
 They both smell so good.
Even if we have had of sun this May,
the garden looks amazing and is blooming like it has never bloomed before...!!!!


  1. I'm clueless. Hopefully that's not a general statement.

  2. I asked Stumpy. She gave them a snoof and then a snuffle and said they were plum blosssoms. I don't know if she's ever seen or smelled a plum. But, she's never been wrong when it involves something edible!

    I'm glad the garden looks good, that's almost redeeming with regard to the lack of sun!

    Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me

  3. Well, who cares what they are if they're that pretty and smell good, too! I love the blossoms, and the photography is great. One day of sunshine in May? Maybe that's why I live in the South... it's going to get 90 degrees F today and I am loving that heat!

  4. those flowers are beautiful!

  6. I'm with Janet...cherry pics at the top of your post and then plum pics. I've obviously got to start getting more informed about trees!

  7. Who cares??? They are both drop dead gorgeous!!! These are some gorgeous photos and I enjoyed each one of them!!! Tell beautiful Sophie that her new header photo is sooooo glamorous!!! We're celebrating our US holiday cleaning up after some pretty bad storms!!! Have a beautiful weekend!!!

  8. Hi Y'all!

    Here in the southeast the flowering tree blossoms are so long departed and the fruits are ripening, so we can't race into the yard to check.

    However, the way the trees are shaped in the pictures I'd guess those are cherry.

    The plums we have are shaped differently with long thick branches with flowers on them. Our cherry trees have long stems off the branches with the flowers on the stems. Also our plum trees have deeper pink blossoms. But we also have some cherries with a pale pink blossom as well as white.

    So Sophie...tell us!

  9. they are so beautiful...I bet the smell wonderful...

  10. I don't know which is which, but I do know they're both really pretty!


  11. We're stumped, but they're both beautiful. And if you get a good crop of cherries and plums....that's gotta be good.

  12. I'll play!! I'm going to guess plum blossoms...Cherry blossoms are usually connected by a long stem to the branch. Plum blossoms are usually (but not always) stuck right on the branch and most have five petals...Or is it the other way around.....

  13. well in my opinion they are strawberries, right soph?

    hee hee

  14. I bet my friend Kim from Golden Pines,, knows for sure!!!!!!!
    So I vote for plums...
    gosh they are beautiful.

  15. We would guess Flowering Cherries, because the plums we have here, have pink flowers...but what do we know, heehee


  16. What beautiful blossoms! We guess cherry!
    Can we have a pawty at your house when the fruit is ready to eat, Sophie?

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  17. Oh my gosh, these photos are stunning! They need to be on postcards. The 3rd one is my fav.
