#avocado blossoms

The avocado flower is not pretty. In January it is not yet fully formed, and vaguely resembles thin, sickly, yellow broccoli. Most fruit trees are heralded for their beautiful and fragrant blossoms. Apples and Oranges, the classic example of opposites, are both renowned for the their flowers. Not so for the avocado blossom. It has inspired no festivals, no folksongs, no shampoos. Now they grow slowly and wait for spring, when they will begin the year or more journey to harvest. (Picture is from March 2013… too windy to get a good shot today)
