Tangerine Tree





















The best thing about South Texas is that after a hellacious summer
of drought and sauna-like temperatures, we're rewarded with trees
bearing fruit! And rain, finally! Happy Holidays y'all and all the
best in the new year!

This is beautiful, Lorraine! So fresh!! Love the different "depths" of leaves. I can only imagine how delighted it makes all of you feel when signs of life like this show themselves. A happy holiday to you as well!

Des couleurs qui pétillent avec ces branches de mandarines... Les fruits embaument mon écran tout entier!
j'aime la lumière qui traverse le feuillage.
Gros bisous à vous et joyeuses fêtes.
