The Smell of Spring...

I just wish I could bottle up a scent and post it for you all to enjoy. I just came inside from some fun out in the back yard with the kids. We decided to come in because there are lots of bees buzzing around our citrus trees. Oh my, but they do smell divine!


This great house we are renting comes complete with a grapefruit tree, a lemon tree and an orange tree. I have been loving the glorious smell of the blossoms from these trees.


Since I can't send you the smell...I post a few pictures I have taken over the last little while. Wish you could all come over for some lemonade!

Lovely pictures. I'm sighing as I look at them. I wish we could rent a house. Having no yard is rather depressing. I can't wait to get out of this apartment!

Those are great pictures. I'm just waiting for our trees to blossom. I wish we had citrus fruit though, yum!

Can I tell you how much I've enjoyed the fruit you gave me?? YUM! I LOVE homemade lemonade. Sorry if I'm making other people who don't live near us jealous :-) You take great pictures! I found photoshop buried in one of our boxes so I'm a happy camper again.

I can smell it from here! Those are great pics and reminded me of that lovely Arizona orange grove smell. Also reminded me of the allergies I got during spring, but at least with the pictures I can pick and choose what to remember more vividly.

Wonderful pictures. I love citrus trees! They do smell soo good. Oh if only it felt like spring here : ) . . .

You should be a photographer! Those pictures are beautiful (even if they do make me a teensy bit jealous you get to see the blossoms in real life). Spring is slowly coming here - hooray!

I happened onto your blog a few weeks ago. I'm likin' it much. And...as I'm sitting here right now and the drift of orange blossoms are coming in my open window, it is heaven. My favorite month in AZ is March. Ahhhhh.
