Almond blossom

I have commissioned my better half to create a nice header image from our photos, as he is more artistically inclined than I am (remember the Blackadder quote about the cluster of colourblind hedgehogs. In a bag? Well, that would be a compliment for me). In the meantime I picked something easily identifiable although unseasonal – almond blossom, from two trees we have in tubs kindly given to us by a friend who had “too many almond trees”.  As it turns out the variety is not that great to eat, but it is edible and the flowers are beautiful.

Almond blossomLess beautiful is the peach leaf curl they suffer from, and which is quite disturbing close up, I feel, but for now they’re staying with us…
