Well... the orchard certainly has taken on a different appearance from my previous pictures.  The blossoms are all gone and the branches are full of green leaves and you can see the beginning signs of almonds.  Some of the other trees in our area are just coming into bloom, like the cherry trees.  Most of the orchards around us are nuts and well on their way to the growth and production stage.  I'll check in with these trees from time to time, but there won't be much more of a change until the fall when the nuts will dry out and fall off.  Stay tuned.
