citrus blossoms

If you have never smelled orange blossoms, you are really missing something. They have the most wonderful sent, and it perfumed the night air all around our yard last week.You could smell the tree from a distance, and you could also hear it, because it was covered with bees.The lemon trees have also started to bloom.
They get flowers even though they still have lots of ripe fruits on them.
You have to be careful picking them though, since the tree has some pretty sharp thorns.
