Orange Blossoms

This tree will make oranges about the size of ping pong balls--- inedible.
They are often used in potpourris and wreath decorations.

They may also be grown as living fences--- note the huge thorns!

Super detailed image Jenn. They probably smell awesome, especially if they use them for potpourris...........Sandy

Beautiful! My daughter grew an Orange tree from a seed, must have been around 30 years ago! We couldn't believe the thorns as it had never occurred to us Orange trees had thorns.

How pretty these petals are.
I'll be lucky to keep any petals on my tree - the pigeons and other birds seem to like eating them. Smile

Is the odor as heavenly as the flower appears?
Love that diagonal composition, and the juxtaposition of the sharp and soft.

Those thorns look lethal, Jenn. Does make you wonder about Nature - why it produces a tree that has inedible fruit?
