Rain rain go away.. Come again another day..

By this time, you probably guessed how crucial bees are for almond crop. So bees decided not to come out on Monday morning (who likes Monday mornings, right?). but the afternoon cleared up and the bees were very active. But again they took leave of absence on Tuesday, as it was cool and cloudy in the morning and raining all afternoon. 

Lane says this is one of those very wet years that we periodically have to endure with almonds since they bloom in the middle of winter! A wet spring is not unusual with an El Nino event in the Pacific ocean. We are glad we decided to purchase crop insurance. :)

Look at these gorgeous bloom pictures.
