Lemon Blossom

Hi!  Long time, no write.  I'll try to be more regular this year. 

Please note, that is NOT a New Year's Resolution.  I never keep them, so don't want to jinx this.

Today, I got out in the yard after the Benadryl worked (and before it put me to sleep) and got some work done.  I'll share pictures of the garden and all next time.

Today, I marveled once again at the lovely smell of lemon blossom on our Meyer lemon tree.

And as I was standing there, inhaling the heady scent, I became aware of the honey bees.  Lots of them, buzzing around and ....

The honey bee is on the center blossom pictured.

burrowing into the blossoms.

And here it is magnified a bit.

The bees are a good sign, and since we don't use any pesticides in our yard except for an ant powder, I hope to see many of them again this year.

The lemons aren't quite ripe yet.  They'll probably be ready in a couple of weeks, and Meyer lemons are more fragile, they ripen all at once, and I'll have lots of lemon juice to freeze and lemonade to make.

  1. Bees are a very good sign! I can almost smell the lemon from here.


Play nice, please.
