Direct from my future new backyard -
and they have cousins, a grapefruit and lemon tree, too! Oh how I have missed my fruit trees.
It has been a VERY busy week. Two trucks arrived with our belongings which are all now crammed into a two bedroom apartment. We celebrated Hubby's birthday. Did you know you can have a really fun party even while still living in a motel? There was a fun (FUN) party at the quilt shop in my honor this week - friends, food and fabric, oh my! A couple of dinners with The Princess and BF (we need to settle on a blog name for him) And last but not least, we found a house that will soon be ours. I feel a little weird sharing photos since the ones I've taken all feature the current owner's things and that just doesn't seem right to post. So for now the oranges will have to do.
Lots of hoops to jump through to get to escrow closing. If I am absent in the coming weeks, I'm sure you'll understand. I'll check in from time to time. Once we are settled, I'll have lots and lots and lots to share.

Karen said...

You found a house already! Yeah! Are you going to get back into worm growing again? I am not sure what the worm growing is called. Looking forward to pictures of your new home.

Gail said...

Wow, everything is just falling into place for you! I have a theory that when it's easy it's meant to be, so I think your move is meant to be! I can't wait to see photos of the new place once you move in!

Quilter Kathy said...

OH my - how wonderful to have your own fruit trees! I can't even imagine that! I haven't even ever seen a tree that has oranges growing on it! Very exciting!

Oh, I grew up with a lemon tree in our backyard. They don't grow up here in the high desert though, it gets too cold.
I know you're enjoying being home. Happy Birthday to your husband :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

Well, that's certainly something that you would never find in a Massachusetts back yard! I'm jealous. Have fun moving into your new nest.

Candace said...

Congratulations on a new home, Libby! I can just see you falling down on your knees at the sight of fruit trees in the backyard (wink)! I bet you're even thinking of the worms again! Happy Belated Birthday to Andy!
Cheers!

Stina said...

Sooooo happy for you!!!:0)

Karen said...

so excited you found a house! Hope all goes well. The thought of stepping outside and picking fruit takes the chill out of the air here, lol.
thought about you today as I was trying to decide whether or not to "Cheri" a prim bullseye top I put together.Decided against adding any prim little applique and just get it ready to hand quilt.
Take care- hoping you get closing date for the very near future.

suz said...

Keep my fingers crossed that everything goes quickly and smoothly. I'm sure it will be nice to have everything in it's own place. Daisy seems to have adapted quite nicely to CA life!

I think the Prince may be a good name for BF - glad you're getting back into the way of things :)))

Wendy said...

Oh yum the fruits look good. Congrats on finding a new home.

quiltmom said...

Wow you have got a lot done very quickly Libby- How nice that it is working out so well. I am sure that your daughter is thrilled to have you back in California.
I look forward to seeing your new home and hearing your stories.
Congratulations on your new home.
Regards,
Anna

Stevens Family said...

Yeah! Congratulations!! Can't wait to see photos. How wonderful to have citrus trees - mmmm - nothing quite like citrus fresh off the tree still warm from hanging in the sun.

Welcome back to California. I will look forward to
your getting back into gardening I to have a golden
retriever and her name is Poppy like the flower. It is
lovely today here in the SF bay area. I have missed the
gardening part of your blog.
