“Side road orange stand” NEW!

Description from Kimberlywilliams60: Every year for spring break my grandmother would take me to florida to visit her sister.....we would walk around the block to a small orange grove to get the most delicious orange blossom honey to have on toast , I often remember that stand the orange trees , the ladders leaning against the trees , the baskets , the workers in straw hats , the bees buzzing about

    Congratulations on making it to the top half of the leader board, Kimberly. I love your beautiful pick. It looks like citrus harvest here in my area of the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. There is nothing like a just picked off the tree orange or tangerine.

    Thank you so much !! I become addicted to that hunt and i just cant stop myself LOL …I am so impressed that martiana actually found them all ….what determination that was ….I have never been to the Rio grande valley but it seems so beautiful there . You are so right about the taste of a fresh picked tangerine …..I live in new york so unfortunately by the time we get citrus from the grocery stores it is nothing like the experiences I had as a kid visiting florida … truly is the simple things that make life wonderful

    Wonderful pick and description! As soon as I saw it my mind went to the orange groves in central Florida. Agree on the Rio Grande citrus too, Pam. All we need is scratch and sniff to complete this. I remember the amazing aromas though, so great memory trip!

    I LOVE YOUR PICK Kimberly. It so perfectly portrays. The orange groves and orange picking in Florida. My uncle and aunt lived n Florida during the 50s and 60s and would ship that wonderful honey up to our family in the Midwest, along with other Florida treasures like seashells, coral, cocoanuts, and cypress knees!

    This pick is really gorgeous. I was in florida a few times but never saw anything like that. And your pick is so lovely and the composition is perfect.
