Mandarin tree blooming, too

What a welcome sight! My Texas satsuma mandarin tree (‘Miho’) is blooming this spring. It usually puts on fruit every other year, but it skipped last year for some reason. The last time we had mandarins was October 2018. This tree was given to me by my son for Mother’s Day in 2004. I’ve kept it alive all these years! It was in the garage all winter and survived last month’s frigid temps. A few days ago, James moved it back outside when I saw all the blooms. They need attention from our local bees and other pollinators.
