It’s started..

The Almond blossom has started.  Walking the dogs this morning there was the sweet Toblerone aroma that means Spring is headed our way.  Some of our trees are thinking about it but as we walked this morning there were at least half a dozen close to the road  in full bloom. I have no idea what variety it is but the blossom is quite a strong pink and has 6 petals and pale yellow stamens, with grey twigs, just lovely.

I love the way the flowers come first.

You can’t capture the smell. It’s just like Toblerone, honey and almonds.. just delicious.

I shall get a group together and make time to paint this weekend.

Any one want to join us?
