I don't really understand why citrus trees come into fruit in winter, but in any case, we are enjoying our little mandarin tree right now. And the lemons, of course. My Dad came to visit and brought some limes from his orchard, so we are doing very well, citrus-wise.
We went to the christening service of a new baby on the weekend, and I made some little linen slippers in citrus shades for her, as well as a few others. I love the poppy-style flowers on this particular pair, and the linen is so old that some of the stitches are coming away, which I think adds to the whole antiquey feel of them.
Happy new week, readers!
