Flowering Peach Tree

Feel of spring ... There are first soft sweet-smelling flowers and of course peach and almond begin to bloom. Bright, elegant and delicate flowers of peach tree - the byword of spring.

Peach tree blooms in early spring, here in south Italy usually in February or beginning of March. The flowers are white, pink or dark red. Flowering begins when there are no leaves so the tree seems pink cloud on the background of the blue sky. Then flowers wither and leaves appear. This is a short-term beauty, just about a week or two we have to enjoy the flowering peach and almond trees.

Replacing charming fragrant flowers on branches of peach tree soon will appear equally attractive small velvety fruits. But it is - then ...
