Mirabelle plum blossom

Did various bits and bobs today, nothing very exciting, especially as I'm coming down with a cold.

Today's (back)-blip is some blossom on the mirabelle plum (Mirabelle de Nancy) in the back garden. We've had the tree a few years, but this is the first year it has come into blossom - at about the same time as the gage. The gage has been very good this year - plenty of blossom - but there haven't been so many flying insects to pollinate it so I'm not sure what we'll get.
