Spring is in the air

Technically we're still in winter for three more weeks, but when I was driving south through California's Central Valley this week, it sure seemed like spring!  The rural San Joaquin Valley is a large producer of almonds, and all of the trees were in full bloom.

I couldn't resist pulling off the highway to take some photos and wander through one of the groves.  These farmers have been hard hit, first by drought and then by a strike at the Port of L.A.

 Still, it's hard to imagine a lovelier place to be than surrounded by these beautiful, flowering trees.  Now that the strike is over, hopefully the farmers will start seeing some returns as well, and in the meantime, hellooo spring!
