So I saw this and deiced to share it with the world. I usually don't get attached to trees ... but this was my favorite one. I actually picked the plums every year and so on ... This yeah the stupid tree overdid it and bore too much fruit. So it broke. The sad thing is the plums on the broken branches still grow riper by the day :( But there is no fixing it. I do not know what will we do with it in the fall when there will be harvest time. So I am angry at the overachieving tree and it being a drama queen and braking like this. At the same time it is and event that is so poetic, sad and artfull it requires to be remembered.
