Citrus Confusion?

Today’s gold is this beautiful citrus thing.  The question is, “What Is It?”  The Google came up with an orange, tangerine, mandarin, tangelo, Satsuma, Clementine, huh?!  Too round for a tangerine, too dark for an orange. . . . .  Even tried to figure it out with leaf identification to no avail - like that would possibly work.  Short version - here’s what I found:
  - Citrus cultivation has a casual attitude toward cross breeding and variations
  - Trying to make proper order out of it all is problematic
  - Even the botanists can't agree with each other

Really, too funny but good to know it's all interchangeable.  Therefore, I’m good with calling it Golden Sunshine.  Personally, I love the shadows, the sassy stiletto-like leaf and the bold colors!

After all, what good is a theme if it can’t bail you out in an emergency?  Must be time to move on.
