This is a cluster of tiny little buds on the Dragon’s Blood plum tree.
They look like hungry mouths, or toffee apples with a bite out of them.
It goes to show I haven’t got much time left for pruning.
I took the photo using one of 4 diopter lenses Clive bought me for a surprise present, which arrived by courier yesterday.
This lens has the strongest magnification, a factor of 10, and it’s brilliant.
The focussing is so precise that I’m going to need that tripod.
It wasn’t worth it this evening as dusk fell in the cold orchard.
