An Orange Blossoms And Oranges Postcard From California For Friday Floral

oranges and white orange blossoms

I’m sending you some hope that spring really is on the way.  It’s going to get better and thaw out, and also there’s nothing better than a good relationship with your neighbor.

I’m trying to cheer you up with some orange blossoms and a little guided imagery.

The flowers are just starting to open on my orange tree. Just look at the photo and try to smell them. Pretend you are standing in the sun. It feels warm on your back as you lean into the orange tree.

The Santa Anas are making it warm, but not too dusty.  The little fat oval orange buds are popping open and perfuming the air around you.  Breathe.

The oranges from last year are finally starting to get ripe. Hopefully I’ve gotten them safely through the frost season here. We’ll have to cut one open later and see.


And speaking of cold winters, here’s a nice story I found about neighbors helping each other. Hopefully that will cheer you up too.

It’s about an Amish family in Kentucky who took care of his neighbors after the Ice Storm.

So, wave at one of your neighbors today too.
