My Orange Tree

Probably five years ago my family bought me an orange tree for Christmas, one of the mini ones. Dwarf I think they are called. 

I potted it and watered it and fertilised it and it seemed to almost die. 

There have been many times since that I thought I should just get rid of it. Something, possibly its five green leaves, stopped me. And so it moved with me. And I gave it pride of place. 

Today when I was watering it after our nearly forty degree celsius day, I noticed that it has started budding. Lots of cute little buds. 

It has persevered to stay alive, barely alive, all of that time, and now, with obviously perfect conditions, it is blossoming. Literally.
