Early spring ...


View On Black

A field of almod trees in full bloom (and the detail bellow) - in the Algarve they bloom very early (max beginning of February) and they are also known as the "snown of the Algarve" - there is actually a legend about this: an Arab prince married to a northern princess ordered to be planted all these trees so she would enjoy their white beauty and be reminded of the snown of her native country - and I must say its truly beautiful, romantic and ever so soothing. So as Spring is just around the corner (here its "on" already) I would like to share with you all its celebration - so enjoy! After all:
