There’s no real point to this one, other than to speed up the time it takes for the movie post to disappear (I think only the last ten posts appear on the front page).
I think I mentioned last week that it was finally fall in Florida. Well guess what? It’s only been a week and signs of spring are here! I do really love fall, when we finally get a reprieve from the heat of summer, but there is one part of “spring” I like… the blooming of citrus blossoms. It used to be you could smell them everywhere… until most of the groves around here were bulldozed for subdivisions – and most of the remaining trees were eventually burned to fight one of many citrus canker outbreaks. Still, there are many places you can smell that distinctive sweet smell around this time of year – and one of them is our backyard.
We’ve got three citrus trees: lime, grapefruit, and tangerine. Right now the lime tree is in bloom.
Oh, I just love it. It’ll be even better when we can pick some of those limes (which we think may be a variety of key lime – they’re small and a little more yellowish in color than your average lime).
