Clementine blossoms on a rainy day

There is a tiny clementine (citrus) tree in the front garden but despite it’s size it is an enthusiastic grower. It has already produced two small fruits that didn’t survive the curiosity of the children. In Afrikaans we call these fruits “naartjies” and it is apparently a hybrid between a mandarin and a sweet orange. It is now however sporting several white blossoms so here are a few pics. I also thought they would make a nice subject for a monochrome project that I am working on.
