Almond blossoms~Today's Flowers 041810
















There are four almond trees up at the ranch where I board my horses. Two of them have white blossoms and the other two have pink ones. They only bloom for a short while, so, last month, while they were in full bloom, I walked down to take these photos of them. The ranch owner told me that last year, they had a good crop until a strong wind came by and knocked all the almonds off the trees. Another year, they had a really, strong, hard, late frost. Maybe this year? Today's Flowers for April 18, 2010.

So pretty! I love the fruit blossoms. Too bad I can't tell one from the other.
