well that’s just plum cherry

     Ok, actually it’s cherry plum…..I think. All i know is this stuff is pink!

I’m very excited to keep hacking at this tree. I can see so many spoons just waiting to jump out. Today i got 4 roughed out, all crazy bent spoons. (the above crook is the top spoon in the picture below)
