RDY-B. Wow, those pictures took me right there, and the description of the fragrance that must fill the air took me to a level of emotional elation I cannot describe. The fragrances of life outside, the flowers, the blooms of the trees, is something that I hold dear to my heart. I don't think that there is anything more beautiful in life, than the crisp and wonderful scents of nature. I could ramble on about this for eons.
Those pictures of the almond blooms were something that I have never seen before, I have seen intermittent trees blooming, but have never had the experience of seeing an orchard in full bloom. One of these fine days, I am going to have to actually visit an orchard when the blooms are running high. I do not know of any actual orchards in my vicinity, so I would have to go on a search to neighbouring towns. We don't have many orchards around here, but further north in our province, there are cherry, apricot, apple and that list goes on.
One day, I will find an orchard, in full bloom, and step into that world of fragrance. I know how nice a cherry tree smells that is close to my grocery store, I can smell those blooms from a long distance away. My world to be walking down an orchard, such as how you described the almond groves, ohhhhh.....I am longing for that day when I can witness this type of fragrance that would overwhelm my soul.....
Thankyou for taking me into this world of fragrance that I can only imagine that you have been in. Anyone that can have the privilege of walking in those orchards, never take this for granted, and I know that this is so easy to do, you are privvy to one of nature's most beautiful qualities, fragrance.....and I can be the bees would be intoxicated by the aromas too. Beautiful day, beautiful life, all that is beautiful. Cindi
