We start off each year with a wonderful show of pink and white blossom spilling down the hillsides. Flowers appear in early January and their petals often look like snow on the surrounding hills and mountains.
As we move into Springtime, the almond nuts begin to swell, hidden within their soft green velvety cases.
Finally, at the end of a long hot summer, the green velvety cases have dried and cracked open, to reveal and shell of the almond nut inside. Ready for the picking!
