I think most of my childhood revolved around these trees or something similar. Growing up in the central valley of California had it’s upside in the form of beautiful almond tree orchard blossoms during Spring, and a downside in the form of seasonal allergies. We made a trip to visit family this past week and the boys were so curious about the orchards. Søren called them “snow trees” and although Aiden has seen them before, his eyes were still filled with wonder. I still can’t help but feel a little magic when I see them.
Are there any types of flowers or trees that bring back childhood memories for you? Which ones?
