Spring is in the air...


It's easy to forget that Vacaville, California wasn't always on the map for outlet malls. Years ago there wasn't much on that stretch of I-80. The exception was the Nut Tree, named so for the expansive almond orchards. Nowadays you really have to look for the orchards, but they're still there - smaller, but still there. If you take the Pitt School Road exit, you'll see a well-tended almond orchard. This year, when I drove by the flowering orchard I had my camera with me and was able to capture the almond blossoms. I used a sepia tint for two of images to create a feel of "stepping back in time."

I know it's not an orchard but, if you go to the New Nut Tree there is a small theme park that is great for families with young children! Check it out! www.NutTreeUSA.com
