The bounty of citrus fruit at Fair Oaks
Fair Oaks has a large variety of citrus, all delicious.
Today was dark when I arrived so I headed for the studio upstairs in the old house. As you know, I love that studio so much. I spend many happy hours painting there, especially in the summer. I brought a painting with me to finish. I did some cleaning in the studio and finished just in time for lunch. Sebastian and Magda brought their dog Rex and joined Mark, Chris and me for lunch of delicious chicken wings with French fries. Chris made delicious homemade flat bread, topped with rosemary. Yummy!
After lunch I headed out for a quick drive in my beloved blue cart. It has been sick lately with some kind of mechanical problem and it barely ran, with lots of weird chugging along. When Mark drove it, it ran perfectly. Go figure!
We picked citrus fruit. My daughter will make marmalade and I will make chocolate orange bread this week.
I saddled up Leroy and headed for home after a fine day in paradise.
