Citrus! Dr. B. sends Steve a box of Indian River Grapefruit for Christmas, all pink inside. R prefers Tangelos. The kids love Clementines. Lemons might be my favorite. Last week our principal had snacks for the teachers. We had to stay at school – make up time. Bummed to stay an extra 3 hours at the end of the day but greeted by this box. The blinds for the library windows are on-order so the sun came out and fell right on the fruit. I peeled the skin and bent it so the oil was on my fingers. I ordered the book Oranges by John McPhee after reading his quote (3-8-10) , his comparing California and Florida oranges. Abstracts for May 7 & 14 1966 Articles in the New Yorker.
Yum, I can almost taste the fruit–and smell it as you peel it back.
And a delight to the eye…
Orange is my favorite color.
It seems always make people smile…Marti
Beautiful color. I preferred California Navel oranges until 2 years ago. Haven’t read John McPhee’s quote; but I’ll vouch that the juicy Honey Bell FL oranges are a treat to match the California varieties. In January they harvest the Sugar Babies – and they are wonderfully sweet and juicy – and my new favorite winter fruit.
I like the real oranges in the front compared to the fake orange Sun chips bag in the background
oranges are my favorite – yummo
