Purple Plum's First Bloom

In our landscape, we also have a flowering Purple Plum tree. When I left for the field this morning, I noted that the buds were looking quite full. This afternoon, I saw we had two blossoms. The tree has been blooming in less than stellar fashion the past two years or so. I believe it has to do with the odd rain fall patterns we've had in the fall and early winter timeframes. We shall see. But the bud count looks quite high.
