A WALK IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD


to admire the almond trees...






The almond tree is called "Shaked" in Hebrew all year round and it is very modest and unnoticeable, but in spring when it blooms so gloriously, and is not to be overlooked it is called "Shkedia"!

Traumbilder, Yael! Wir kamen gerade aus Linköping und unterwegs hat es geschneit. Keine Blüte weit und breit, kannst Du Dir denken. Was wäre ein blühender Mandelbaum jetzt für ein Anblick!

Liebe Yael,

da wird man richtig neidisch, wenn man diese Mandelblüte sieht. Da werde wir hier noch eine ganze Weile warten müssen. Ganz herrliche Fotos sind das.

Liebe Grüße
Jutta

Beautiful photos Yael!! I've been visiting almond and apricot trees too, trying to capture their loveliness with my camera. They smell so good when you get right inside them!

Gorgious Almond tree is so lovely. Does it produce almonds?

Thank you for this post, Yael, as I haven’t seen Almond blossoms before. I wonder why almost all the fruit trees bloom such beautiful flowers. Cheers to all the glory and beauty of the Almond blossoms!

Die sind so schon, Yael. Ich habe bluhende Mandelbaume ein mal ins leben gesehen--und ich war erstaunt!

Beautiful! These almond trees must be like our southern azalea ... modest bushes that blossom gloriously every spring. It will be a couple more weeks until ours bloom.
