השקדיה פורחת

The "almond tree is blooming"--a sign that Spring is just about here. Normally, the almond tree blooms on or about Tu B'shvat (hence the famous song), but this year the flowers appeared a bit later, because of the leap year (there are two Adars this year). These photos were shot last week, when the weather was indeed Spring-like. This week it went back to cold and rainy, but with Winters like this one, my winter jacket will last for 30 years!
