Urban almond trees

I have the location of two almond trees in Barcelona, in both ends of Diagonal avenue, Pedralbes and Glòries.


I visited them and shot pictures before the huge snowstorm of March the eight. They are easy to reach so that I can admire some white petals without having to take a plane to Japan when cherries blossom; a bike or metro ride is enough.

Brave trees! They challenge not only cold weather, but also the polluted air, noise, concrete. They make me think that a harsh surrounding is not an unsurmountable impediment for growing something beautiful, subtle and resilient.
