Almond Blossoms - Santa Monica

Posted on February 14, 2011 at 11:23 AM


Almonds are blooming in Santa Monica. My tree is young but gives me plenty of bloom and fresh almonds to nibble on.  There is a neighbor who lives across Douglas Park, which is just a couple of blocks from my house.  He has the most gorgeous almond tree, and I didn't know this until this spring. I don't know how I missed it all these years.   There were hundreds of blossoms on this tree. The neighbor offered me a branch.  I asked him if i could take a picture of the tree.  Of course, he said, but hurry because the blooms will disappear quickly.  Sure enough, when I got there two days later, they didn't look the same.  I missed that decisive moment but I still remember it.  Here is a shot of the blooms on my little almond tree.
