    Beautiful sunshiny pick but you live in Florida! Unfair advantage! Sorry had nothing but wind and rain since late Christmas night.

    Asia says:

    Just wind and rain, oh poor you, how about my -30 and snow every day, I was also making a pick with the yellowish tones and similar title, pretending I was somewhere else :D

  3. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    I could not endure that Asia I don’t know how you do it. This is why I’ve never left the south and only visit northern areas in spring/summer. I do not like cold!!!! BRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! I’m a beach girl.

    We were also under Tornado Warnings all day. My phone kept beeping with warning notices and scaring me half to death.

  5. Asia
    Asia says:

    I can’t stand that either, Deb, I probably will not renew my contract, I came for the interview in late spring the weather was decent never dreamed that the winters can be so cold and long, I should have done my homework, but at the time I had something else on my mind!

  6. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    So exactly where are you I forget. Somewhere in Canada right? Yea I couldn’t live any further north than Virginia…and no further than an hour from the coast.

    I don’t blame you at all.

    Asia says:

    Yes, i’m in Canada in Northern Alberta, just the name says it all ;)

    Hi Deb and Asia. Sorry! Today was PREFECTION in weather: high of 65 and bright sun all day. But it’s dipping down into the 40s tonight! LOL

    I saw the beautiful citrine pendant in the new items and the first thing I thought of was sunshine!

  9. Asia
    Asia says:

    Deb, now she is really rubbing it in ;) Julie that was my thought too when I saw the pendant :D

  10. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Yea just rub it in…but 40′s are not good for the oranges.

    Okay, ladies,at least we can pretend to be where its warm and sunny. Just like Julie’s awesome pick! Then get the John Denver CD out and dream.

  12. Julie Shane
    Julie Shane says:

    Gotta love John Denver! :)

    Deb: 40s and even 30s occasionally are okay for the oranges. It’s the several days in a row freezes that cause the most damage. The fruit will usually survive, it’s actually the trees that suffer the damage from continued freezing weather.
    BTW: Even the orange trees are more tolerant of the cold weather than all of us local Floridans… Our blood is way too thin! ;) LOL

    Deb Harding says:

    I couldn’t renember how low the temps could be. I just remember my grandfather talking about putting out the smudge pots for the trees back in the 60′s. I know one year they lost a lot of trees. I love the smell of orange groves…

  14. Julie Shane
    Julie Shane says:

    The big growers now have intricate watering systems. When the cold weather comes, they soak the trees and the ground with water. Sounds like the opposite of a logical solution. However, the trees automatically spend their energy absorbing and using and distributing the water within their growth system, so in that way they are actually less likely to freeze from just sitting there.
    That’s the best “high tech” description you can get from an English teacher! I can grade essays, but I can’t explain science! LOL

  15. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    That was a very good explanation actually and wow things have sure.changed. My grandfather managed the groves for probably a mid-size grower. Had a free house on a big lake. My uncle managed the ranch portion. Near Sebring Avon Park area. It was gorgeous. Then he sold out to a big grower and they had to move.

    Gorgeous sunny pick, Julie! I was looking at our Florida pictures earlier while watching the snow falling out the window. We got over a foot today!

    Love the pick! and all the stories! northern Alberta is almost as brutal as it gets! Our Asia is one tough chick! :) We sometimes get that frigid Canadian air but not every day like they do up there. I finally caved and bought the big round yellow opal. it is every bit as gorgeous as the picture and this pick!

  18. Julie Shane
    Julie Shane says:

    Love the big yellow opals. I really want those rondelles.
    What I want… and what I can get… oh so sad!
