Sweet not sour



Diane recently wrote of her very prolific lemon tree and I was thrilled to think of such as thing.  This is not in my garden, it's over the fence but I still love looking at them.  They make me feel happy with their bright spots of colour to the wintery garden.

Refection:
Psalm 66:1 (New International Version)
Shout with joy to God, all the earth!

  1. lovely lemon trees. wish we had
    the right climate.

    i enjoy throwing my lemon rinds
    into the disposal to release their
    heavenly fragrance.

    blessings!!

  2. I love lemons. When we went to Sorrento we saw many lemon trees covered with huge lemons. I have always wished we could grow citrus trees here in North Carolina. I would love to have lemons, limes, and grapefruits to pick. Carla

  3. Funny that both of your mention the climate. I think there is hardly anywhere in Australia that could not manage to grow a citrus tree (provided they had water).

    Is it because you get snow?

  4. They are a lovely colour and look crisp and fresh. Mine are finishing now but already there are blooms and baby ones appearing again.

  6. Elk, dragging a tree in and out is beyond my capacity to care .. things must survive on neglect in my garden. I have a Meyer Lemon too but it is planted in an unsatisfactory spot but because I can't find much sun in convenient places it will just have to languish until it dies.
