Almond Blossom Time ........


I pass by this small almond grove each week on route to my
French language class ... today I noticed the first soft pink buds
opening upon bare winter branches.

They are very lovely Dianne. I recall such blooms from Spain (probably quite a similar climate to you) and they can be very early blooming, but a sure sign than spring is almost there for you. Sadly, that means that autumn can't be far off for us. Sigh!

A beautiful image Dianne. Almond blossoms are the promise of warmth to come. A hint of Spring.

Spring already winging its way to you. It doesn't seem that long ago that you were in the middle of Summer.
