Almond Tree Flowers for Easter Holidays

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.

    These almost remind me of cherry blossoms but I guess they are different. I like them.

    Michele took my words or put them for me. Also we got white, smooth snow here and it`s coming almost -10 degrees Celsius at nights, so, no blooming trees here!
    Thank you for your beautiful picture.
