SNOW ???



This looks like we had a sudden snow storm in our backyard.



Actually it's a blizzard of almond petals this morning.
After some simply gorgeous weather we are back in the wind and rain cycle.
All the pretty blossoms are falling to the ground.



This was the way the almond tree was 2 days ago.
Have a great weekend everyone. Try to stay warm and dry.

wow that is awesome! well kind of & at least it isn't snow because i could only imagine the cold that goes along with it. It has been rather rainy/windy here as well which i haven't been happy with but luckily enough i have been able to enjoy the weekends with out the rain & it has been gorgeous! What a beautiful tree & pictures

Oh, the snow around the tree, it was the first thought that came to me when I spotted the first photo. The scene is wonderful, yet I am sorry for the blossoms short lasting. If only we could enjoy their beauty longer. I love those lovely blossoms on the third photo. That is breathtaking beauty. All your photos are really great.

I can't believe i got to my ripe OLD age and have never seen and almond tree. these are beautiful. it looks like powdered sugar in the first 2 photos. the blooms are lovely. that is a shame they are falling, won't that keep the almonds from coming on the tree?

Your almond tree looked wonderful Sue. Pitty the petals are falling off in the wind, but the yard looks nice with the petals on the ground anyway. - Dave

The top two remind me of Japanese paintings. These are prime b&w candidates!
