Orange blossoms <3

Our neighbors have an enormous orange tree that grows right at the property line.  All winter long, the tree drops oranges into our driveway, which makes a disgusting mess every time Seanie or his brother squishes one under his car tires.  Every time I walk outside, I kick the oranges into our lawn or back into our neighbor's yard.

There is one perk to having that orange tree outside.  (Well, free oranges would be great but we never take advantage of the fruit hanging over the fence.  I don't know why.)  Right now, the tree is in bloom and it smells heavenly. I love the sweet fragrance of orange blossoms, and it's so strong right now that sometimes I can smell it from inside our house, even when the doors and windows are all shut up.

Hmm.  Seanie's been sneezing a lot lately.  I wonder if that's why?
