The Annual Almond Bloom

I was down for the count for over a week with something that was more than a cold, but not quite the flu, but I knew that a week-long rain storm was coming that would likely wipe out the almond blossoms if I didn't get out at least once.

So, I dragged myself out of the house on a beautiful Sunday and captured a few nice images of the almond bloom before the rain set in and washed all the flowers away.

Here's a few shots from around Durham.
