I have a small weeping plum blossom tree. It is called “shidare ume” in Japanese. Last year, and the year before, it blossomed in February. It had beautiful pink flowers. This year, it hasn’t blossomed. I don’t know why.
Maybe last summer was too hot for it. Maybe I didn’t trim the branches properly after it bloomed last year. Or maybe I didn’t give it enough water. I keep it outside, so it gets the rain, and I water it a few times a week. To be honest, I’m not good at keeping plants. I think plants need care and attention. I don’t think I give my plant what it needs.
When I look at my plant, I feel sad. I wish I could see its beautiful flowers, but I don’t think I will see them this year. Hopefully, it will bloom next year. 😦
