Orange Blossoms - What a fragrance!

My citrus trees are all starting to bloom.  The oranges and lemons are all in full bloom and the grapefruit are about to start.   If you have never smelled orange blossoms, your missing out.  Its a subtle citrus scent that you will know when you smell it.   If you enough to live near an orange grove, you will especially smell it at night.  Its very similar to a gardenia fragrance.  I used to live near 100+ tree orange groves and it you could smell the orange blossoms 1-2 miles away in the evening.  
Here are some of my orange trees in bloom and the grapefruit about ready to start.
