Carcassonne's Spring Flora

flowers near carcassonneIt’s that time of year when my RSS feed fills up with bloggers posting amateur pictures of almond trees in bloom.  Well technically, the almond blossoms come out in February (except for rare occasions like 2010 where they waited til March).  This week, you really see several of the other fruit trees and flowers kicking into action.  Black cherries, damson plums, quince, and so on.  They’re all coming back to life as the vines weep and show they’re ready to start budding as well.

So what if every blog is posting pictures of blossoms?  Who am I to be any different.
