The annual display of millions of blossoms is set to begin here in the Central Valley.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says buds are starting to expand on almond trees, and the bloom is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

Many parts of the Valley, including Fresno County, host festivals in celebration of the beautiful view. The bloom typically starts in the middle of February in almond orchards, and continues for other fruit and nut tree through March.
