Dragon’s blood

These are some of the Dragon’s Blood plums, seen from underneath the branches.

There aren’t as many as usual for an ‘on’ year, maybe because of shot hole┬ádisease and aphids due to the wet spring.

But they’re big, and┬ájust as delicious and beautiful as ever with their startlingly bright red juice.

I wonder who decided that dragons have blood that colour …
