Against the deep blue hue of the sky near the town of Tarbena in the Comunidad Valenciana in Spain, the colorful pink flowers on an Almond Tree contrast themselves. Spring in this region brings about some beautiful days and the more sunshine, the faster these pink blossoms will open and decorate the landscape.Almond trees are small deciduous trees which grow to be between 4 and 10 meters in height and the trunk of the tree growing to be approximately 30 centimeters around.
Each Spring, the colorful blossoms begin to open on the Almond Trees, quickly dropping off and producing green leaves and then the small fruit which is hidden in the center of a downy outer coat.
