Great Pumpkin update and Orange Blossoms

Well, I have spent the last couple of days putting a ton of stitches into The Great Pumpkin Conspiracy. My goal is to finish it over the weekend. Here are a couple of pics of my progress:



I also noticed that there was a flower on one of the orange trees outside my bedroom window this morning, so I went outside and took some pictures of the trees. Here are a few of them:





I had never really seen an orange blossom up close until this morning. While working my way around one of the trees, I began to notice the fragrance. What a wonderfully spring-like aroma! I also noticed some bees busily pollinating the flowers. If you look closely, you may catch a glimpse of one.

Don't forget to check out the giveaway corner for giveaway opportunities on other blogs!

Well, that's all for today! Thanks for stopping by!!!
