Tiny Orange Blossoms

Our orange tree just started these tiny blossoms. Can't wait till they open and send out that wonderful orange blossom fragrance.
I stood under the tree and sketched this on tan paper with ink and white ink. Notice the bee I put in because they are also waiting for the buds to open.


  1. I was immediately drawn to this image of the orange blossoms. I have such vivid memories of smelling orange blossoms last spring when I went for evening walks in my neighborhood. Around the block there is an Orange tree and I enjoyed walking past it and experiencing the scent it gave off. Memorable and so is your sketch. I like the details you've captured and the bee was a great idea!

  2. Thanks Claire. That wonderful smell of orange blossoms is one that stays with us.

  3. I've never seen orange trees ... this makes me want to.
