Loved the exchange about the orange trees ! Hilarious! (I think Misti actually posted "Calamondin Orange" back on the previous thread but somehow it morphed into orange caladium on this one...) I have an orange tree in my sunroom but not sure what kind it is -- but it sounds an awful lot like Ron's description so probably a Calamondin. Messy darn thing because it gets absolutely covered with blossoms, which then in large part drop off, of course... but they are so fragrant the whole room smells just like being in south Florida. It usually sets a few little oranges whenever it blossoms, they really are bitter and I'm not sure if they could be used for anything actually, other than just looking cool on the tree... and they stay on for a long time.

We were right on a rain/snow edge today and ended up with 3-4 inches of VERY wet snow... our weather is taking a turn, though, we've been having unusually mild temps for December but in a couple of days the low is supposed to be -2F. But any winter that we can get through December with only a few inches of snow on the ground, and not too, too cold until January, is a really GOOD winter here! (Spring is just around the corner!!)
