    Default Orange Blossom Time

    Our orange trees are in full bloom right now and the fragrance in not to be believed.
    I wish that I could bottle it and sent it to all of you

    Our evenings are scented with this heady perfume and the honey bees are busy making the orange blossom honey,
    HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE !!!!

    ...'overwhelming' is understating! They're pretty powerful when in full bloom.

    I have never seen an orange tree in bloom, or for that matter even a picture of orange blossom before. I'd love to smell them. I am going to have to get myself over to some of the big glasshouses at Kew or Wisley to try and get a whiff.

    So thanks for posting the picture for us.

    I love, love, love the scent of orange blossoms, I even use an orange blossom shower gel and cologne. How lucky you are that you can have the real deal growing in your garden, must be heavenly!

    Pretty bloom! I went to nursery yesterday that sells a lot of fruit trees. Between the orange blossoms and the lemon blooms the air was heavenly! I wanted to just sit next to the fountain and breathe it in.
