Same plum orchard as before. Painted a week later this year than previous years. Let’s hope there’s no frost during this moon cycle – ‘la Lune Rousse’ – the ‘red moon’ because of the risk of frosts, which can burn the blossoms & new leaves, thus turning them red. There’s been bad harvests for the last two years on the trot for plums & prunes.
