Mellow Yellow Monday

MellowYellowBadge

Since I have a minute, I get to participate in my first Mellow Yellow Monday (MYM).  Yay!  The idea is that we post a picture with something yellow in it, link to MYM, leave our link at MYM, and share a little Monday sunshine.

Kumquats? Oranges?

I took this picture in December 2010 at my grandmother’s house in Ojai, CA.  No one really knows what it is.  The general belief is that it’s a stunted orange tree.  Based on the leaves and thorns, however, it looks more like a kumquat tree to me.  I wasn’t brave enough to taste the fruit because I hate kumquats!  Blecch!  And as oranges they’re just insufficient.  Any thoughts?  Do you know what this citrous aberration is?

Thank you for the idea, Gerry!

  1. well that used to be a song, by Donovan, call me mellow yellow, and here you are with words pushing the doldrums out of Monday morning with yellow; hugs and gratitude.

  2. I think it was an orange tree that almost died. It somehow mutated into this thing with 2″ long thorns. I guess you didn’t notice that it’s been dug up and replaced with a Haas avocado tree.
