Almond Tree Flowers for Easter Holidays
© All Rights Reserved
Easter is here and many are already on holidays. Anybody there? Not my case. I keep on posting flowers in my stubborn crusade against best blogging practices, not to repeat topic. The almond tree, Prunus dulcis, grows flowers in the early spring right before the leaves. Talking about sunny skies and beautiful flowers is sort of science fiction gibberish right now. It is raining cats and dogs tonight in Barcelona but they say the weather will give us a break by Friday. Many towns in Spain will take their holy images for a walk in procession and everybody is crossing their fingers. Catholics, atheists and believers of all credes meditate, pray, disconnect from the real world or celebrate the old Roman way, you know. I am planning to open a florist shop to send you flowers online, I accept credit cards. Just kidding. I wish you all a happy Easter.
PS: I heard about Tsunami killer wave in Solomon Islands. My condolescences to the victims. I hope no one there in Asia gets hurt or affected.
