18 Feb 2011 - Almond Blossom Time

For the past two weeks the Jalon almond blossoms have transformed valley.   And this is one of the best views, taken from the end of our road.

Many groups organise walks in the valley at this time of year.  We always do our own walk from Parcent to Jalon, and this year we were joined by our neighbour Brenda.

 As we walked down the hill from the I took  this view of Parcent
 The walk is about 5 miles each way, and avoids any main roads

 We passed a couple of other groups, but most of the time it was quiet and peaceful
 This is a very easy walk, on good paths and mostly flat
 We were lucky that the blossoms survived the recent heavy winds

And it has the advantage of a wide choice of cafes in Jalon ideal for a refreshing drink sitting in the afternoon sun before tackling the return journey.
