Capay Valley 3

The outer row of trees in the almond orchards all seem to have their trunks painted; either with a ring of paint as in this photo, or with the trunk completely painted.  I don't know the reason for this, but I'm guessing that the paint is enough to prevent some sort of pest from entering the orchard.  The orchards are in peek bloom this weekend.  It was somewhat overwhelming being out with my camera in all these blossoming orchards; the fragrance was so strong it made me lightheaded!
