Spring in Morocco

Fruit Tree Blossom
February and March are the busiest months in the village gardens, preparing them for the main growing season after the winter rain.
The fruit trees, apples, plums, apricots and almonds are mostly in flower, so pretty to look at.

Under the fruit trees wheat and broad beans are growing.....
also a tortoise!

The Pomegranite trees are just coming into leaf.

A pair of donkeys ploughing 

Lemons seem to be growing all the year around!

Watch for my next Morocco Blog about the gates to the village gardens !
