Almonds in bloom

I thought you guys/gals might like this. These are pics from right behind my house.
I live in almond/walnut country, these are everywhere around here and it is a sight to behold!


I just listened to a NPR podcast about shipping bees from Louisiana to California to pollinate the almond trees. One of the almond growers said the trees were beautiful, and now I can see that is very true.

Yes, old almond orchards still rely on bees around here. Independence is still relatively new,
