The Almond trees are still in blossom, which bodes well for a slightly bigger harvest than last years, which was the grand total of three almonds .... yes three. We were forgiving they are baby trees and they had only just been planted months before we got nuts. This year with little frost to speak of the blossom has all stayed on the trees and is looking beautiful.
Somebody asked me in a comment on a post when I published a photo of them a bit ago if they were ornamental or actual food trees. Well I rarely 'do' ornamental, if I'm growing something it has to be edible or have a definite benefit ... although saying that something as beautiful as this blossom is a benefit to the eyes isn't it, so it's a double bonus with these trees.
It's turned really chilly here this afternoon, luckily I managed to get all my washing dry enough to finish off on the Aga before the rain came and now it's evening so time to feed the pooches and cosy on down for a relaxing evening with a good book.
