Well, these trees are blooming all over Israel, and I finally found three seconds to stop and photograph one! Here you go - enjoy!

 
As always, feel free to enlarge it and get a better view. And go check out more botanical photography, at Today's Flowers. Have a great week, everyone!

I've never before seen an almond tree. The blossoms almost look like a cross between pear (white) and peach (bright pink) flowers. Very pretty. I would imagine they are also very fragrant.
