Indian Plum is possibly my favorite native plant, mostly because its leaves and blossoms emerge so early in the year.
It is my reassurance that spring really is coming.

Indian plum handles the "late" snow without a problem. We'll see if our almost-blooming forsythia does as well.
The snow definitely makes the stream look more dramatic.
