Almond (Amygdalus communis)
Almond blossom, sent to teach us
That the spring days soon will reach us.
        Edwin Arnold—Almond Blossoms.
Blossom of the almond trees,
April’s gift to April’s bees.
        Edwin Arnold—Almond Blossoms.
White as the blossoms which the almond tree,
Above its bald and leafless branches bears.
        Margaret J. Preston—The Royal Preacher. St. 5.
Like to an almond tree ymounted hye
  On top of greene Selinis all alone,
With blossoms brave bedecked daintily;
  Whose tender locks do tremble every one,
  At everie little breath, that under heaven is blowne.
        Spenser—Faerie Queene. Bk. I. Canto VII. St. 32.
