Home....



Check out Anna @ Thimbleanna's to read about the almond story. I had written about the lovely spring we have in our little corner of California. We are surrounded by almonds. Hundreds of thousands of almond trees. At one time there was a mature orchard right at the end of our street. We live in a tract home and we're the fifth house from the corner. When the almonds were loaded with blossoms and the wind picked up it would blow them all the way down our street. It looked like heavenly confetti!
Here are a few pictures of what we see every day in the spring. Whether we walk to the corner, drive into town or take a longer drive. It's a magical, beautiful time of year.

Thanks God!

My favorite thing to do is drive through our lovely countryside and see the vast blossoms all over. kachoo! Someone once said that they had never known there to be so many trees in our area that bloom so profusely. We are lucky to live in our pretty part of California! Pretty pics!
