{the simple things} almond tree

Spring is here. Actually, today it felt like summer was here already.

Just last week I managed to put some of the kids' winter hats, mittens and boots away, getting out regular shoes and sewing lighter hats (yep, that's right. Me and my sewing machine made something my kids can actually wear. Not that I managed to take a picture of them yet).

Today I had to dig out sandals, sunscreen and sun hats. Go figure.

Anyhow. I did manage to get a couple of quick pictures of our little almond tree, snapping them after dinner just before the sun went down and the kids had to be put to bed. 

Just a few more days and the flowers will be gone already. Last year we got a plate full of almonds from that tiny tree. But I think I love the blossoms most of all.

Linking up with Rebecca today.

Happy Sunday!


  1. Oh for beautiful, I bet it smells amazing too!

    Enjoy it while you can, the blooms seem to go so quickly!

    1. Thank you! I will. We're spending as much time outside as possible, who knows when the cold and rainy days will be back. Makes for much less time reading and commenting blogs though. Oh well. I'll be back.

  2. Beautiful photos...lovely light on the blossoms!

  3. Lovely blooms, love the pinks.

  4. they are beautiful Swenja!I know that if I had them growing in my garden I'd be spending more time drinking tea underneath a whole cluster of those blossoms. As it is, I will have to make do with this big weed of a tree at the back which I happily put up with for its bright yellow flowers :)


I don't know about you, but I love reading comments. That's a hint for you to leave one, btw. Not that I'm begging here. But I do love hearing from you...
