I Made Some Jelly...and NOT KY Jelly!

Plum tree growing in my landlords back yard! Do you want to talk about a sight...to bad nobody got the chance to watch me almost fall from the tree. I had a few close calls. I'm not the young and agile kid I once used to be.
The plethora of plums that came off that tree. Aren't they so pretty - love the colors!
The outcome of the plums turned into JELLY! I made this jelly all by myself...except for several phone calls to my sweet Aunt Rosalie, who is a master canner. I had to keep calling for help, and bless her heart she was happy to help. Yes, she even got a jar of jelly in the end, and LOVED IT!
Tasting the tart, sweet plum jelly. Mmmm...so good, and I made it myself!!! I really am enjoying the fruits (no pun intended) of my labor - it was just a long day so I kind of look tired...
