TU B'Shvat? Where are the Flowers?

There's a traditional Israeli TU B'Shvat song that most probably everyone who has gone through the preschool system here learns to sing, השקדיה פורחת Hashkeidia Porachat, The Almond Tree Blooms.

This year, being a leap year and all--which means that an extra month of Adar is added to postpone Passover-- it's no surprise that my almond tree looks far from blooming.

I just wonder if there will be flowers in a month.  Or will it take even longer?
