Mandarin Oranges

We own three citrus trees.  A Meyer Lemon, a tree that produces small orange fruit the size of a large marble, and a Mandarin Orange.  About a month ago they all came out of the greenhouse.  The change in light caused the Meyer Lemon (that already has a few lemons developing on it) and the Mandarin to bloom.  The Meyer has just a few flowers scattered around.  The Mandarin is absolutely covered in sweet smelling flowers.

We've only ever gotten one sad orange from this tree, as it hasn't been a great bloomer in the past.  I guess it's making up for lost time.

I can't wait to see how many oranges start to develop, and how many we have to remove to keep the tree from breaking.
