WINTER GIFTS FROM MOTHER NATURE

Mother Nature is so good to us! Sometimes we go about complaining about how she makes things to cold or to hot. But she is always giving us wonderful gifts.

We have a miniature orange tree in our back yard. Right now we are starting to get several oranges.

Let me tell you, if you have never had a fresh orange picked right off the tree you are missing out. They are wonderful! So sweet and juicy.

Today I went out and picked several and made some fresh squeezed Orange Juice. It was so good!

Wish you all lived by me so I could pour you a nice big glass too!

You are soooooo right, chick! I loved it when we could go pick our lemons fresh from the tree in the back yard. Can't do that in Idaho.......
Smooches,
Connie

You're so right about going out in your yard and pick fresh oranges. Our neighbors gave us some navel oranges and they are so sweet and juicy. Then we have a full supply of tangerine,limes and grapefruit too. But, on the down side, the A/C is on, it's 83 with 80% humidity.I hate hot weather at Christmas time. :)

Hugs,
Chris

I have a dwarf satsuma mandarin tree. I can't wait for it to start bearing. I also received a peach tree for Christmas this year.

There is nothing like fresh oranges. My Great Grandmother lived in Florida and she would send us fresh picked oranges!! Yummy!!!

Oooh, what a wonderful thing to have right in your own backyard! (I love your birdbath, too!)... Nope, we don't grow orange trees in our backyards here in New England... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

Everyone should plant a fruit bearing tree it's the best way to get fruit free.

I love fresh squeezed.
