Spring in Arizona

Springtime is Arizona is a glorious time of year, with all sorts of everything turning that almost indescribable shade of new green
so fresh and lovely.
All sorts of trees, plants and shrubbery exploding into bloom, most especially our wee orange tree in the Delicious’ backyard kingdom at Hermosa Castile.
This winter bared its teeth harshly on our wee orange and monster lemon trees, freezing our citrus rendering them pithy and pretty much inedible.
But, the promise of spring has generated new life and a bumper crop of orange blossoms.  The fragrance of which is beyond belief, a wonderful something that sneaks up and surprises each year.
Spring in Arizona is the perfect time for walks in the cool evening when the glorious smell of citrus blossoms greets you here and there
putting a smile on Queenie’s face.
I hope the promise of Spring time is
shortly around a corner near you!
Until next time…
Have a great day!

The smell of orange blossoms, is something, I don't know if I have ever smelt. I wish there was a way for you to incorporate that smell into your post. I might just have to stay here all day and sniff :)
Queenie, I don't know if you know about this or not:
My husband is having a $25 Amazon gift card give-a-way on his blog and I have a link to enter it on mine. So come visit and put your name in the hat. He's doing it in celebration of your 37th wedding anniversary. The drawing will be April 15th so get in while you have time :)
Have a wonderful day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Queenie, I'm sorry the winter ruined your oranges and lemons, but at least you have the glorious scent of orange blossoms to comfort you - I don't think anything smells better than orange blossoms, not even lilacs!

Blessings,

Victoria
