Almond trees

The almond tree flowers are among the first to bloom before the end of winter, and stand alongside the olive tree as an emblematic tree all over the Mediterranean, where it has been cultivated for 5000 years. The abundant white-rosé bloom of the almond trees is one of the very first shows of Mediterranean nature in March.

Far from the coast, the Mediterranean spontaneous flora explodes in the plain and around the woods at the beginning of April. The first strongest ones will be violets, wild orchids, like Robert's Barlia, ophrys bees, followed by muscaris with their small purple bells, and in the garrigues, thyme will adorn themselves with thousands of tiny fragrant flowers that will titillate your nostrils.

But the surprise does not end there, a carnival of wildflowers will strengthen all these flowers in the month of April. Other colors will explode like the red poppy, the purple lilac, the white stars of La Dame de Onze Heures, the purple of Valerian, this flora will never cease to amaze you and embalm fields, paths and walls of rock gardens
