So much for "gonna die"

I had a white plum, a Narrabeen, that was about ten years old and looking sick, eight years ago. Lots of sap coming out of the bark and a whole limb going dead midseason. Indications of utipa, which is terminal. I decided to run it home, cut off the dead branches as I need to and take fruit for as long as I can.

No signs of it dying yet, the two plums I planted either side of it are starting to make their claim now.

Btw the paint is just any old paint. I paint the bark of a few trees especially citrus before the real summer. They say it helps with sunburn.
