Lemon Tree

We have lemon trees, orange trees, grapefruit trees and avocado trees in our great room......none of them have ever bloomed.  Last spring my friend Kaye told me about a lemon tree that would  bear fruit here in North Alabama if I took really good care of it.........I bought one, a Meyer Lemon tree.......I did everything the nursery suggested.

I came home from work a few evenings ago and as I stood at the back door gazing at the sunset, I noticed a sweet smell.......I was so excited I called Rick who was meeting with his publisher.  Our little lemon tree is covered in blossoms, if every bloom represents a lemon.....we will have dozens.......I can make pitchers of lemonade.   As soon as we have lemons you will definitely see pictures.......I feel like a proud momma.
