The winter season has to be my favourite on the island: perfect weather to go hiking and the almond trees in the fields are blossoming. I just love the pink flowers growing on almond trees between January and March.
“When an almond tree became covered with blossoms in the heart of winter, all the trees around it began to jeer. ‘What vanity,’ they screamed, ‘what insolence! Just think, it believes it can bring spring in this way!’ The flowers of the almond tree blushed for shame. ‘Forgive me, my sisters,’ said the tree. ‘I swear I did not want to blossom, but suddenly I felt a warm springtime breeze in my heart.” ― Nikos Kazantzakis, Saint Francis
