Oranges and lemons.......

It is the time of year for oranges and lemons in my garden. The fruits of winter.

Today was a mixed winter day - white clouds scudding across a beautiful blue sky one minute and then grey sky and driving rain the next, but always constant was a a howling wind that blew all day, wrapping my washing around the line, and tearing at my hair as I worked in my garden doing some winter pruning that was well overdue.

The orange and lemon trees are bearing their bounty and so I picked this basket of beautiful oranges, and made a jug of lemon juice - pretending to be a summer day.

 The last few grape vine leaves are clinging onto the vine, and will soon wither and drop - making way for the new shoots of spring to come.

I hope you have enjoyed these pics. I look forward to hearing from you. Have a wonderful week.

  5. Hello, Jill.
    It's nice to know you!
    Your oranges and lemons look so delicious. Your blog reminded me that I homestayed in Sydney. At that time I was surprised that some big white birds with yellow cap come to the house every morning.
    Thank you sharing orange in winter.

  6. How amazing to live somewhere where oranges and lemons grow on trees! My idea of paradise! :)

    Gorgeous images, Jill. The colours sing.


  7. So refreshing to see the lemons and oranges! I love that glass of lemonade..

  8. What wonderful images and they look so summery apart from the last one, that it is difficult to believe apart from your descriptions that it is winter in your corner of the world.
