All I want for Christmas is…..a lemon tree!

and Nick delivered! ho ho ho!

About a week before Christmas, I came home and there it was!  It is beautiful – about 3 ft high.  2 ft wide. with 5 little pea sized green lemon stub, and 5 white flower bulbs ready to bloom.  It has a light fragrant smell that is not overwhelming.


My new house project is to keep this little guy alive.  It didn’t occur to me when i asked for a lemon tree for Christmas that I don’t exactly have a green thumb.  In fact – most of plants that I owned has died.  Including one cactus, numerous African violets, and several bamboos.

so this will certainly be interesting…wish me luck!
