Oranges ripen
far from the bamboo gardens—
will the dancers come?

  1. oh nice and such fine shadows. Have a nice Sunday

  2. Did you pick any of these tempting beauties? Nothing like a fresh orange. I love that orange next to the brilliant blue sky.

  3. Beautiful picture; one of our favorite RV Parks ever (when we traveled in our 5-W all the time) was located in an old orange grove in Bakersfield (not a great city otherwise, but on the way to places). You were welcome to pick as many oranges as you wanted…it was so fun.

    Thank you for hosting SOC

      You’re absolutely right about Bakersfield—especially in the sizzling heat of summer! 🙂

  4. what a yummy looking delight!

  5. The fruit looks in danger if falling on the ground – where the ants alone can enjoy its juicy insides – if the dancers arrive soon, the humans instead will be able to enjoy the nectar…we hope!

  6. orange blossoms
    the dancers arrive
    at sunset

  7. Ah the missing ingredient…dancers….nice mood
