February is almond blossom time, Sella’s most beautiful month. Whole hillsides are drowsy with the pinks and whites of the newly arrived almond flowers and In the picture one almond tree that stands guard over the Sella River bridge, but there are thousands more to choose from. The drive down to the coast in February is a marvel. The pink and white blossoms line the road and you can smell soft scents in the air. Of course, February is also known for late snaps of cold and windy weather when many of the petals will end up on the ground.
