City folk adventures on a piece of country paradise in Northern Florida - and anything else I want to write about.
Smells like all the citrus trees are blooming late thanks to Mother Nature's cold winter.
Does a grapefruit tree blossom smell the same as an orange blossom?
your header picture makes my heart race. i was born in ALachua...and it looks like home! love it. and the blossoms on the grapefruit! can you use that in an arrangement? will they last?
Hi Suwanee Refugee, glad you are feeling a little better. Native Mom, to me they smell the same, but I'm sure some people can smell the different. Yes, Chickory, our TreeFarm is very near the Alachua border. I have never tried to use the grapefruit in an arrangement. If I do, I will post.Thanks for commenting!
Thar' jes' ain't nuthin' like citrus blossoms perfuming the air. It is other worldly!Has I mentioned I love the title of this blog?
I used to grow Meyer lemons and oranges in California, but I've not yet smelled any citrus blossoms here. I make up for this by wearing a wonderful fragrance with a zingy grapefruit note, Bond No. 9 The Scent of Peace.I've never smelled richer jasmine or gardenia than I have in Florida, though.
