So we’re staying in Anna Maria Island, Florida. And I can honestly say I’ve never been to such a chilled-out, friendly and beautiful island. The sand is fine and white, the beaches are long and there is not a hill to be seen – perfect for strolling. But the best thing about this island is that the house where we’re staying has Orange trees in the garden. I kid you not – with actual Oranges on the trees.
Not only Oranges but Lemons too.
And Limes. What an amazing thing to be able to walk out of your kitchen door and pick a Lemon. Today, I made salad dressing with Lemon picked fresh from the tree. Actually, it didn’t taste any different than a shop bought one – but it felt different.
I would love to have my own citrus fruit trees. I actually have no idea how to grow Oranges or Lemons but I would learn, very, very quickly if only I lived in the right environment.
