the scent of citrus
This is the time of year that the air is filled with the sweet scent of orange blossoms. I love it! It also means that our lemons & oranges are ready for harvest. We have a Navel orange tree plus a fruit cocktail tree full of lemons & grapefruit. The branch that once produced the Valencia oranges broke off several years ago. But how cool that for many years we had a tree that produced lemons, oranges & grapefruit!
But harvesting our citrus will have to wait for a couple weeks, till our kitchen remodel is complete. I can hardly wait to put up gallons of lemonade concentrate for the summer and trays & trays of orange juice cubes for smoothies. But till then I will have to settle for a pretty display of lemons on my new/old farmhouse table. Literally the only thing in my kitchen!
