Transformations

DSC_8011AIt just knocks my socks off to see the return of fruit in our garden. The strawberry plants survived the few frost nights we had this “winter”.

The orange trees have delivered all their fruit, and we have only just finished juicing the last of the oranges. Today the same trees are bursting with new blooms — so many blossoms that the open dining room window delivers their fragrance into the house even now, at 8 in the evening.

    1. Barefoot? Yes, the grass is thick and the days are warm. And the homemade OJ is sooooooooo good!

    1. I’m SO happy to be here, Gigi. There are some downsides, for sure, but even more upsides. For me it’s a good fit. And all the fruit in the yard is just a gift from Mother. I take no credit.

  4. You’re breaking my heart – I can just imagine the taste of that fresh juice (I see you found the juicer!) and orange blossom is one of my favorite scents. (sigh) 🙂

    1. Oh, that’s not a juicer — it’s a carpal tunnel machine. (Seriously, we have to buy a military grade juicer for next year.)
      We’re drinking juice morning, noon and night. I’m enjoying a tall glass of grapefruit juice at this very moment. We could use some help!

      1. LOL – carpal tunnel machine – that’s a good one! You need one of those leverage-handle ones with a downward arm-crank. I wouldn’t be much help with the juice drinking… excessive acidity gives me canker sores. 😦

  5. Wish I could have juice from the fresh and I mean just plucked from the tree fruits… Dying to have some. These pictures are so tempting.

    1. The best orange juice I have ever tasted. I can’t want for next year’s crop. The blossoms are already turning into baby oranges!
      Thanks Hemangini
