Life Among Orange Groves

Hello beautiful people. 
Would you like to see where your orange juice is growing?   
 
In my neighborhood!!!   
(Deep in the heart of Pasco County, FL)
 
Harvest will be in a month or two.

~ George Orwell

 

“We cannot live without the Earth or apart from it, and something is shrivelled in a man's heart when he turns away from it and concerns himself only with the affairs of men”
~ Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

 
"A man ought to carry himself in the world as an orange tree would if it could walk up and down in the garden, swinging perfume from every little censer it holds up to the air." ~

 
 
 
"And every day when I've been good, I get an orange after food." - Robert Louis Stevenson
 


“You do somethin' for me? Go tell Twink I'll meet her at the old grove Tuesday about dusk-dark."


Holy Smokes.  He scared the living day lights out of me.  Do you see him? 
 
A thermometer in an orange grove.  Very important!

 
"When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out -- because that's what's inside. When you are squeezed, what comes out is what is inside." - Wayne Dyer
 
Be blessed and Be a blessing!

I grew up in the middle of an orange grove on Lake Yale in Grand Island, Fla. the most heavenly smell are the blooming of the orange blossoms and the honey of orange blossom flowers. You have to have frost to sweeten the oranges, but heaven help the farmer if it freezes!! You're up all night keeping the heaters going!!
