  15. @ Ivy-- Thank you so much. I love spring and I agree, there really is a lot of natural beauty to capture. Have a beautiful Sunday~

    @ Krisno-- Thank you! I hope you're having a nice weekend.

    @ ρομπερτ-- Thank you! I'm glad that you enjoyed the blooms and they brought you joy in the middle of the night:)Thank you for your kind words and I hope that you are able to enjoy the remainder of the weekend.

    @ Lilly Diane-- You're welcome & Thank you. I'm glad that you like my photos. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    @ Jude-- Hello my sweet Jude!! Oh those poor donkeys, I'm so glad that you posted that story because it's relevant and brings awareness to a problem that some might not have ever thought about.
    I do believe that your almond blossom is almost over, most of the other trees around us are the same. Ours always blossom later because of our proximity to the water, the winds are so cold.
    The sun is shining here too but we had a hint of snow flurries yesterday, if you can beleive that!
    Have a beautiful Sunday Jude!
    xoxo

    @ Jes-- What a beautiful surprise! Thank you so much for being a part of my life! You bring sunshine to me too!!! Thank you for the award!
    xoxo

    @ Maria-- Thank you Maria. I really do love the almond blossoms. I love how the trees line the country roads--enjoy your almond blossoms and yes, don't forget to take a photo or two!
    I hope you have a nice Sunday.
