Lemon Tree










June 15th, my little potted lemon tree was in bloom.  It had produced one very large fruit last Aug which I used to prepare a lemon filling for a white cake.  The plant had about 16 leaves, yet produce one large fruit although it took a year for the fruit to grow to this large size and turn yellow!  This year, the plant has about four to 6 branches and a lot more leaves.  From June to Aug , it produced flowers on three other branches.

July 19, to my delight there were more blooms. The tree had been moved out to my patio in June.
