Spring!!! Spring!!!
Peaches & nectarines are in full bloom. These are always the loveliest trees because of the bright pink color. Each variety is a different shade. The San Gabriel mountains are still covered with fact they had snowfall last week. Bees appear out of nowhere to pollinate the flowers. We have 2 or 3 other species of bees in addition to the honeybees. Each species looks a bit different & they all seem to get along. It's still cold first thing in the morning, but they get busy around mid-morning & stay at work all day unless the wind kicks up. I can almost taste the peaches now.
