Almond blossoms -Indian Himalayas

The glorious almond blossoms are found in the Himalayas at a high altitude, in orchards as well as in the wild. The clusters of flowers surround the delicate, twisted branches of the tree, encircling it. No leaves are visible between the delicate white flowers. The white flowers have 5 petals and a red center. I stood transfixed at the sight of these blossoms, and I am guilty of having touched the flowers ever so gently. No, we did not pluck, disturb or damage the flowers,
