Growing quietly at the top of the house is a small lemon tree. For some reason over winter most of its leaves fell off, but it does have five lemons on it, which is good enough for me. I love lemons in things, so the big question is, what will I make with them. Lemon curd? Lemon tart? Lemonade? I'm not sure when they'll be ready, or when lemon season is. I've got three lemon plants in total and they seem to flower randomly through the year. In fact they seem to have growth spurts at odd times too - new shoots appeared in December, when there is least daylight available. They are a bit of a mystery, but so long as there are lemons, I'm happy.
Linking up with Lou for her "Nature in the Home" series.
(While fiddling around with the link, I lost this post. I feel like I have experienced some kind of initiation. Another lesson learned.)
