The first blossom in the valley

The blossom is late here this year, colder temperatures have delayed the almond and cherry blossom. blossom2 9-2-15I know it doesn’t look like much, but this is the first in the valley and so is a cause for celebration. Almond blossom too early = a poor almond harvest as the blooms will be killed by frost. Now is about the right time. So fingers crossed for a good almond crop, last year’s was non-existent. blossom1 9-2-155 to remember
retresado/a – delayed
una fiesta – a celebration
¡a buena suerte! – fingers crossed
una cosecha – a crop
non-existente – non-existent
