There was a time when farming, including citrus, was big business in Sierra Madre and the surrounding area, and provided a living for many local families. Here in town, this included the Pegler ranch, the Hawks ranch and packing house, and (even to the present day) the Ward ranch. Now, with the exception of the Ward ranch, orange trees are not so much a business in our city. More like a really nice luxury item that many of us are lucky enough to have in our yards. I very much enjoyed the wonderful scent of these orange blossoms as I stood under an orange tree taking several photos, in an attempt to capture these pretty blossoms. Then, I came inside and sneezed for several minutes. Ahhh (choo) - the things we bloggers will do for just the right shot!
