Orange You Glad
Oranges were once considered the ‘fruit of the gods’ and were actually the Golden Apple that was sought by Hercules. The taste and aroma of an orange differs from season, county, state, country, soil and place it grew on the tree. Orange oil has been used as a cosmetic, wood cleaner, and degreaser. The oldest known variety of orange is the Navel. Only 20 % of the orange crop is sold as ‘whole fruit’ - the rest is used for juice, extracts, and preserves. And children thru the centuries have use the orange peel wedge to make a ‘funny smile’.

I thank all of you who commented and so many orange lovers! And no one said anything about my newest quilt having orange.

WHY DID THE ORANGE STOP ROLLING DOWN THE HILL?
BECAUSE IT RAN OUT OF JUICE!
