August 31 - American Plum - Prunus americana
This is the American Plum tree in the summertime. This tree lives in Mountain Home, Arkansas. There is a grove of American Plum here. The grove is in a garden on the Crystal Willet Nature Trail. Master gardeners take care of this space. The space is open and lends an air of peace that lets your mind rest and any tiresome thoughts just drift away. There are benches for observing nature and plenty of nature around. I saw rabbits myself as well as many different birds while sitting in the park this evening after work. I highly recommend an afternoon in nature. Just sit. While sitting do not engage your thoughts, just acknowledge them and keep on sitting.
