What is too soon to be blooming? Well, it is my almond tree, which is in full bloom already. This is way too early. This is because California is still experiencing the drought. 😦
We had a lovely wet December. January, which usually has a few days of rain, was awarded a new record: The Driest January on Record. Temperatures in January were in the 60’s, and we have not had the normal freezing temperatures. We have had four days of rain this month so far, giving us a bit over 5″ of rain. The next anticipated storm is slated for February 21st, and the chance of it raining is only 40%. Not good. Because of the dry January, and because of the lack of rain this month, plants are blooming now which should not be blooming another month or two.
Anyway, I grabbed the camera, threw on my extension tube, and got these photos of the almond blossoms that I want to share with you today!
Aren’t they just beautiful blossoms?
Thanks for dropping by today! Send the rain our way, or do the rain dance for us! Have a terrific Thursday and be well… ^..^
