It happened. The orange blossoms have burst and the fragrant scent is intoxicating.
And the cool thing is... those orange blossoms will be oranges next year...
... even though this years oranges are still waiting to be picked.
I made my first pan of lemon bars from this years crop of lemons.
My aunt Marion from WI & my cousin Connie from New Mexico came for a visit
and we had more fun treasure hunting
and eating warm lemon bars in the van. (it was in the mid 80's)
Check out our mulberry tree below. Every day more and more leaves spring forth,
and I'm thinking I need to spring into action myself and get some projects checked off.
You see, here in the southwest, we know what's coming.
Hot, real HOT and blasted HOT!
So my goal is to make a way to park our van in the garage...
before the garage registers 150 degrees...
or the van parked outside registers 200 degrees in the dead-of-summer.
In all honesty, if you saw my garage, you would know that is no small feat.
So. Today I feel inspired. Not sure how long it will last. But here goes nothing...
