What Is That AMAZING Fragrance?

Palm RealtyI have been sleeping with my bedroom window open lately because the weather has been so beautiful. For the last couple of evenings there has been a magnificent fragrance wafting into my bedroom. I couldn't figure out where it was coming from, so, last night I went in search of the source. Well, believe it or not, my Ruby Red Grapefruit tree is in full bloom with these gorgeous, petite white flowers and THAT is where the amazing fragrance originated from! I had absolutely no idea that fruit trees produced any fragrance like that! Palm Realty

My next surprise was the large number of bees that were busy flying around the tree and therefore pollinating the grapefruit! None of them were bothered with me being there and none of them were in the least bit aggressive. I also discovered that I had 1 very large Carpenter Bee feasting on the nectar from the tree. I had never seen one before and had to google it to be sure what I was seeing.

The bees are healthy in my organic yard!
