Never has such a gift been given so much attention. When sunny and bright, that tree went out the front door into the warmth of the sun. When rainy and cold, inside the front came that tree. Our huge mistake came when we left it outside too long and we had visitors come in the form of grasshoppers - you know, the same one's that ate our garden. Our lemon tree was their dessert. The poor lemon tree didn't survive - or so we thought.
The leaves and branches came back for a short while - and the above picture is the result of much TLC and determination on Del's part to NOT LOSE HIS LEMON TREE.!
This lone lemon is our harvest from our lemon tree - THIS year. And there will be much thought as to when and where we will use the fruit of our labor.
I will save it for our Sunday meal.
