Spring in the garden

Almond (Prunus dulcis) - The clearest sign that spring is beginning is the almond blossoms. Odorous and with white or pinkish tones, they are very decorative. After this phase, this tree will turn green to bear fruit between July and September. It tolerates drought well, but late spring frosts are very damaging.

2. Peach (Prunus persica) - We jump from nuts to another delicious snack. Before we get the rich fruit that gives this tree, we will enjoy a spectacle of pink color that can reach the deep red thanks to the large number of flowers that populate its branches. In May the first peaches begin to arrive.

4. Cherry (Prunus avium) - Another tree that blooms in early spring. The planted fields seem covered with snow for a period of about 15 days due to the white of its beautiful flowers. Its presence is highly appreciated in Japan, but in Spain it also has a special prominence thanks to areas such as the Jerte Valley.

Be aware that it is dangerous in a garden with children, since it is very poisonous. If this is your case, consider other options.

9. Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) - The beauty of these flowers is only comparable to the pleasant aroma they give off. The combination of these with their dark green, hard touch, oval-shaped leaves is highly prized. If it is located in climates with not very cold winters, its flowers will appear in late spring.

Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) - The last tree on the list has flowers ranging from blue to violet, which is really original. Although its flowering season is spring, sometimes there is a second one in autumn. To the touch with the skin it is capable of producing allergy. Its wood has a good reputation in carpentry.
