a post of what is to come... hopefully

we bought our dwarf lemon tree about 3 months ago and have planted it in a pot in our backyard. we also put it on a wheeled plant stand to be able to move it around to the sunniest areas and make it happy. unfortunately, i threw the tag away, so at this point i don't know if it's a meyer or a eureka lemon tree. foolhardy girl! time will tell, i suppose.

in the last month, dear lemon tree has started to bud - hurrah! and today i noticed that three of the (many) buds have just started to crack open. soon we will have deliciously sweet-smelling lemon flowers in our yard... ahh. and then, hopefully, i will be able to share wonderful lemon-based recipes that i've whipped-up after stepping out into our tiny, urban, limited garden. maybe even recipes that also call for cilantro, basil, parsley, red bell peppers, and jalepenos, which we're also growing. maybe i'll make a recipe that only calls for ingredients i've grown... wait... too far.

a close-up of the bud just having burst... glory be!

  1. Hi Liz! I love your blog. It's beautiful and so fun to read (you're a pretty funny lady). I love your recipes of course and your pictures are very artsy and wonderful. This comment is a general comment but I thought your lemon tree pics were especially pretty and it seemed a little lonely (with no other comments). you're too kind with what you wrote about me... but I will still continue to forcefully push recipes into your life. love you and will call you soon.
