In the California orchards the blossoms are falling off the trees and what comes ‘After the Blossoms’?
The cherry trees are also starting to grow fruit. Here you see two cherries in different states of growth. Gone are the beautiful blossoms on most trees and it will not be long until there are nice large red cherries.
Not only fruit trees, but also some of the nut trees are starting to produce their crop. Here we see a couple of almonds starting to form. The lower one is still wearing the remains of a blossom like a skirt.
However, the walnuts are always behind. They do not yet have leaves on the trees let alone nuts. Give them a little more time though and the walnut orchards will be alive with color. Of course, they are also one of the last fruits or nuts to be harvested in the fall.
California is definitely full of fruits and nuts this time of year 🙂
