orange bud and shadows

Even though the fruit trees and vegetable garden have been in the back yard since I was a child, I never really took notice of them.  Being back home after being away for so long and without a garden, I find I'm noticing the life cycle of plants.

The orange blossoms have all fallen off and the small oranges are green and promising.    Ok ... now I get it!  Those little flowers become the fruit and vegetables.

This small bud will be a giant leaf, and soon! The macro details of nature seem to appear more to me as I age. The natural cycle is so intriguing!

Mother Nature in action... it is amazing! Been a long time since seeing/smelling an orange blossom for real. Not much citrus grows up here in the Far North, you know... ;o) Happy Weekend, Juana ((HUGS))

Can't wait for it to end up in my glass with the fresh, wonderful tang of it's juice! Well done in capturing nature your photo is.
