The almond buds are the harbinger of spring at my house.

Today I walked out to see whether our tree had begun to blossom and I saw the buds. We get almonds to grow on the tree but before we’re able to gather them, they’re all eaten by the squirrels!

In a few weeks, this is what the almond buds should look like.

Maybe after 12 years I’ll figure out how to outsmart the squirrels.
