Orange time

Everywhere I look at the moment, all I see are Orange trees full of fruit and if you get close enough the scent of ripe oranges.  It must be picking time very soon, because there so many of them.  I always knew there were a lot of orange groves around where I live, but I cannot go fifty metres without seeing an orange tree!  And then in March / early April it all starts again with the lovely scented orange blossom.  

This is such a beautiful time here in the Algarve, with the Almond trees about to bloom, giving this white haze, almost like snow and all the other flowers starting to bloom.
