When just about everything is uncertain, I look to the predictability of God's magnificence in nature for a dose of stability. This plum tree produces fruit every summer like clockwork.

When it flowers in the early spring, a plum tree will be covered in blossoms. In a good year approximately 50% of the flowers will be pollinated and become plums. Flowering starts after 80 growing degree days.

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. Abraham Lincoln
