ALMOND BLOSSOMS DECORATE SACRAMENTO VALLEY

The world’s largest pollination event is dusting Northern California with pollen.  Almond trees are blooming in areas north of Sacramento, but soon white and pink flowers will pop up across the valley.  The pollination season typically runs through mid-March, which beekeepers in the region use as a timeline to move their colonies.  The pollen flows southward into Sacramento and can reach as far as the San Joaquin Valley, budding flowers in its path.  California produces nearly 80-percent of the world’s almond supply.
