Blogtober day 1 - the colour of summer

We picked our remaining oranges from our tree this weekend - I'm still amazed that I can grow, pick and eat our very own grown citrus fruit!  This is my little helper checking the quality - he valiantly held the box whilst I was up the ladder reaching the highest growing fruit before I lobbed them down to him - he caught every one!  Even the bees were in a summery mood, buzzing contentedly amongst the heady smelling orange blossom, not even curious about the enormous hand flitting between them taking the fruit.
Hope you can see the myriad blossoms - they smell divine!
A lovely way to start my Blogtoberfest journey ... please go here to sign up or simply to discover more awesome blogs to visit.
