Blossom time has begun again in California. For the past couple of weeks trees have been blossoming and filling the air with allergens. It has been a bit miserable, but very beautiful.
This picture is from three years ago. As I drive south on I-5 to Patterson on Sunday mornings I look out over orchards full of white and pink blossoms. It really looks like it has snowed on the valley floor.
Right now it is mainly almond trees that are blossoming.
However, the cherry trees are also starting to blossom as well.
Bees are out in force pollinating the blossoms.
As you pass by the almond orchards you see stacks of hives at the end of the rows of trees.
I am also thinking about cherry blossoms in Tokyo. There is a chance that I may have to go to Japan next month at just the right time to see them.
It is a beautiful time of year, but I am also happy when it is over and my allergies calm down a bit. For now, I just keep taking my allergy medicine.
