One more from the yard:
I have had this orange tree for 5 or 6 years. It has only bloomed and made fruit one time.
It is now covered in blooms. I feel that the mild winter must have contributed to the blooms.I'm sure it should be pruned, maybe moved to another location, but I hate to risk it. It is on the south side of the house, protected from any north winds.
The rewards are twofold from the orange tree. First is the wonderful scent. It makes the yard smell so sweet. The second is the sweet fruit. I think it must be either mandarin or tangerine.....they were so sweet and delicious it makes my mouth water in anticipation.
