An Almond Tree By The Sea

1 Comment

An almond tree (Terminalia catappa) is probably one of the first trees I learned to identify…from the large leaves and the oval shaped fruit. As a child, I loved to eat the flesh on the outside when the fruit was ripe and to bite into the fibrous husk and suck the sour juice from it. I experienced many smashed fingers while cracking open the husks with large stones to get the nuts inside.

Almond trees often grow near the sea. Even on a cliff face sometimes.p1020041p1020128p1020129Red leaves falling into the sea and drifting on the gentle current…p1020096p1020112…viewed by a couple of small fish….p1020116Bright colours. Blue sky. Blue sea.boat-on-seaAlmond tree.p1020133

  1. Oh, lovely images Susan! I always love the red leaves. And I remember our son furiously bashing the fruit to get at the nut, when he was a young boy.
