Calla Lily

 Calla Lilies line one side of our house. They came out all at once in the last couple of weeks. The rain we didn't get in January has come in February. Though we seem to have gotten a lot of rain lately, reservoirs are not back to "normal", and we are still considered in a drought. Not a bad state to be in, if it gets people to conserve water. Seems like a good practice at all times.

Orange Tree

Orange Tree

February 28, 2009

 The orange tree in our back yard is heavy with fruit. It seems to give two big crops a year, now, in late February and again at the end of May. (Strange that they aren't evenly spaced.) The fruit is delicious. When fully ripe the oranges are more sweet than acidic. The segments are thin skinned and don't hold together well, so if I eat one I usually peel part of it and eat it like an apple. Otherwise, I juice them. The fruits have looked ripe since mid-January, but they are just now ready.
