Almond tree in bloom just this week. And check out that blue sky! Every year this tree has bloomed in January. And every year just as it blooms, we get the biggest storm of the season and all the blossoms get knocked off and we get zero almonds. This year I *told* the tree to wait, to not get fooled by the unusual warm week of weather, which was then followed by a big windy storm. And check it out, it listened this year, hooray! Maybe we will have some almonds to fight over with the squirrels this year??
