Today's Flowers #93: Beach Plums

When I walked on the beach of South Cape State Park Last Sunday,  the season was too early for the beach roses, which I have shown at Today's Flower #44 last year.  However, Beach Plums, Prunus maritima, were blooming on the beach everywhere.

Here is a shrub filled with flowering buds ready to bloom.

Here is one in full bloom from a distance.

Here is a close-up of the pretty white tiny flowers.  It was taken with the 80-400mm super-telephoto zoom, not bad what it can do in close encounter.

I was told that the fruit of beach plums are quite tasty and often collected by the locals to make jam.
