ALMOND TREE EXPLOSION


Thanks everyone for your concern and comments about our health.

Dave and I are feeling so much better today.

Sometimes just slowing down and doing nothing is the best answer.

So...

Our Almond tree has exploded into a glorious bunch of blossoms.




The brilliant blue of our Northern California sky is the perfect backdrop for the blossoms.




The clusters of blossoms look like ready made bouquets.




The insides of flowers have always fascinated me.

The stamens  are so delicate.




The breezes blew just as I took this shot, but I really like it anyway,

blur and all.

Have a wonderful day.

I'm so glad to see Deb coming to your blog. She has been a faithful friend on mine. She is a sweetheart. I still have some of your cards, and I just hate to use them...I love going them and think about you!!! Perhaps one of these days I will mail one off and bless someone else.

The blossoms against the blue sky are lovely. It gives me hope that spring will come here too.... right now it's cold and snowy. Blossoms of any kind are only to be found in the flower shops.

Those blossoms are exquisite and I can only imagine how amazing the trees look in full bloom .... I *have* actually seen flowering almond trees so I guess it is memory, not imagination. I haven’t seen any here in SW Florida though, where we now spend winter and spring. Were from Oregon and flowering trees were lovely there!
