They had been stuffed with horrible stickers and produced bitter oranges that nobody ate. (Apart from that one time Liv and our cousin Sara made orange juice for me.. and I needed to drink it lol. I just about did a loopy sour-faced dance across the yard earlier than spitting it out.) Anyway, that a part of the yard has been naked and we had large goals to place one thing in its spot.
