Just on the corner outside my kitchen windows I have this flowering mirabelletree that gets bigger each year. The pictures of these are a present for my friends and family. You just have to imagine the fragrance.

Now it is the time of the year for flowering (just like any other tree or bush that get flowers). The flowers are white, small and very fragrant. I sometimes cut off a few branches and take inside a couple of weeks before the actual flowering season. Just to kickstart spring…  It takes about two days for the flowers to appear indoors. And another two days and they are withering. So, very short lifetime indoors.

The entire garden is perfumed. The bees and bumblebees are happily moving from one flower to the next. The tree outside my kitchen windows isn’t the only one in the area. We have plenty of them along the road around the area where I live.

I love those trees and those flowers. They are overwhelming. Later on the trees bear fruit, plum-like fruits. Most of them are yellow, a few are red. I regularly do jam from the fruits. Last year I didn’t as I still have several jars from 2013 and 2014… I still do.
