It's looking beautiful everywhere. Nearer the coast, there are valleys of flowers in all shades of pink. The almond blossom from pale to deep pink, and the cherry blossom almost cerise.
We have had some very windy days, so hopefully the bees have done much of their work, and the flowers will have been pollonated before the petals have ben blown away!
Two of our almond trees haven't flowered at all this year, but the others have! Thankfully, we don't depend on the crop, so it is not a problem. We have eaten all of last years almonds, and they were really nice, but we threw away the walnuts, as they were horrible.
