In Oklahoma you know it is spring when you see the Sand plums and the Redbud trees start to bloom. It is a sight for winter worn eyes to see the countryside filled with the white and purple blooms and is one of the things I love most about this state. The wild plum blossoms are some of my favorites because of their long stamens that give them a comical look, the contrast of their bright yellow pollen against the delicate white petals and their habit of clumping together as if they were keeping each other warm on the crisp spring mornings.
