Orange Blossom Special

As I'm sitting on my front porch, enjoying my afternoon cocktail I'm being buffeted by wonderful fragrances that are  carried by each gust from the approaching cold front. I'm fortunate to have orange, lemon & tangerine trees growing next to the porch and they are just beginning to bloom. If you've never smelled citrus blooming, you owe to yourself to take a trip to Florida in the spring...and you might as well come back in the winter to enjoy the fruit.

The fishing has really turned on this week too, but I'm going to save that until tomorrow.
