Beauty...California Citrus....


I am so thankful that I have an abundance of lemons, oranges and grapefruit...literally just an arms reach away. My daughter reached out her bedroom window for the oranges and grapefruit, my faithful readers have already read about the lemon tree that I have access to, but we picked these up at Curves. There was a box of them for everyone to take a couple! I couldn't miss out on an offer like that, right?
I do not like Tang, Tampico or any other orange type drink. I like real orange juice. I don't like lemon juice from a plastic lemon - I like it from a real lemon. Somethings just can't be substituted. Know what I mean? =]

What a beautiful picture. It is SO nice to have fresh fruit. In our area we have different fruits available as the summer goes into fall....from strawberries, cherries, peaches, raspberries all the way to apples and grapes.

I agree....there is NOTHING quite like freshly squeezed orange juice.
