Popcorn Popping on the Orange Tree

Yesterday, "I looked out my window and what did I see? Popcorn Popping on the [Orange] Tree!" I was so excited! It is orange blossom season! For those of you who have never smelled the blossoms, the closest way I can describe it, would be to say it smells like gardenia... only a 100 times more potent. I love it!! It smells SO good! We have 3 citrus trees (2 orange, 1 lemon). Unfortunately, only 1 tree is blossoming, but there are lots of blossoms on it and I couldn't be happier. Especially because it is the window right outside my kitchen sink. So, as I wash my dishes... this is what I get to look at:

CK was so excited, she ran out and picked me one of the pretty flowers. I had to quickly explain to her that if we pick the flowers, they can't turn into oranges. Hopefully, they will be able to grow up to be delicious oranges that I can blog about next winter!



oh my I love it when the orange blossoms are out! I still remember that when I came down during my spring break. I loved the smell so much I have it in sent oil for around my house! you know the bamboo sticks on the oil. anyway it is the closest i can get to being there and smelling the perfumed air! ahhhhh

There is nothing quite like the smell of orange blossoms. Once while at the Y and extremely homesick my mom sent me a blossoming branch. I cried. I love this time of year!
