HOME GROWN

9x12, oil, sold

We have 2 Valencia orange trees in our yard.  Most of the time these trees are bounitful.  For years at Christmas we would put our christmas tree in the bay window and take photos of our boys standing in front of it.  Always in the background just outside the window hung branches burdened down with fruit.  Loved sending those photos oof to family and friends in the midwest and east coast to share.

This spring series is just lovely, Dori. Miss living in Florida & popping out to pick an orange off the trees. Lucky you.
