Tangerine and Blue

SDP 1-14-12
It's a perfect time of year to go for a drive in the country here. I was in the middle of nowhere, east of I-75, when I encountered this citrus scene. I love the bright orange tangerines against the cobalt blue winter sky. It makes me wonder if perhaps this is how the University of Florida, a land grant college, came up with its school colors: orange and blue.

Makes me thirst for some citrus! It's a lovely scene and terrific colors.

From what I've seen, most of the citrus has been picked...

Thank goodness, not this tree. It's beautiful and I wonder, too, if you're right in your surmise about UofF colors.
