Almond Blossoms - First Sign of Spring
Every year around this time we experience some exceptionally warm weather, that causes the primroses to bloom and then this happens. Almond blossoms! It's the first tree to bloom in my garden and it's a signal that spring is just around the corner. I just hope that it doesn't start raining again before the tree has time to fully bloom and the bees can pollinate it.
Almond blooms also tell me that it's time to plant peas. The next sign to watch for is asparagus shoots.
