A Bowl of Sunshine

A bowl of sunshine, yes it is.
In winter we find sunshine wherever we can.
Picture the sunshine that made these beauties grow.
Set them on your table and just savor the color,
the SHINE, and the flavor they share with you.
Where are you finding sunshine today?
May the sun shine on you this weekend.
Best of All, SHINE!

I so totally agree! Wonderful orbs of sunshine!

Last week I received a heavy package in the mail. I wondered what it could be. When I opened the box, I discovered it was filled with oranges of all shapes, sizes, and shades. Delicious and sweet. All the way from a dear friend in Florida.

I'm still savoring them and am starting to ration them as the box empties.

If that doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will. love setting out bowls of whole fruit. I do it with lemons and apples all through the year. But at Christmas I go for the mandarin orange. Best little snack ever! (Cuties they call them now.)

Oh my, glorious color - shine and sun touched beauty. The sun is everywhere - inside and out today, Very cold but the sun reigned.
Love to you
p.s. we just made a marinade with orange and lemon zest - beautiful.

I am so glad I discovered your blog, because it really does beautify my day.

I love this sunshine-y post, especially because, as I've mentioned before, I am a Florida girl currently living in Boise...and struggling very much with the cold, gray winters.

But my sunshine arrived Wednesday afternoon, when the UPS man left a Jackson & Perkins gift box at my door . Knowing how difficult the winters are for me, a friend had ordered me a spring bulb garden. Some of the bulbs are beginning to poke through the soil, so I expect that in a couple of weeks, I will be enjoying an explosion of color. Not only the gift itself, but the love behind it is the sunshine in my life this week.

We are celebrating the sunshine here after the rain and storms earlier this week--nothing damaging here, glad to say, and the sun has been most welcome today!

I have a bowl of oranges on my kitchen counter, as we speak! Sunshine in any form is welcome during our long winter.

My Sloane has been eating oranges like mad lately. We can't seem to keep them in the house.

Not only are they a bowl of sunshine, but they're perfect for the upcoming Chinese New Year. The photo is so realistic I can almost taste them!

I think clemmies are the most photogenic fruit of all! And yummy, too! Nice photo!
