Almond trees in February
« on: February 24, 2012, 09:13:29 AM »
The only reason for me being tempted back in February would be for the blossom on the almond trees. One day, I will be brave and come back over.  Although the weather is probably the same in the UK as in Mallorca at the moment, I still need central heating in wherever I stay in February and the apartment takes far too long to heat up in the winter!

The almond trees are just coming into bloom now and looking beautiful.  

Only a dusting of snow glinting in the sunshine on the top of the Tramuntana mountains today.  Just lovely!  Thermometer reading 20c so no need for central heating for the last few days.
