It's Time for Awww Mondays! May 19, 2014

Baby plants can be cute too!
Last April we bought a Meyer Lemon tree
and managed to harvest 2 lemons.
This year our tree is loaded with
blossoms and since it is inside still
we have been busy as bees. In other
words we have been the pollinators
armed not with scopas. We have 
to be artistic pollinators armed
with tiny paint brushes. 

Meyer Lemon Tree in Bloom

So far we have well over 15 tiny lemons. 
That will add up to lots on 
lemony delights later on this year! 
Right now we can smell the lemony
fragrance  throughout the house.

Cheers and have a busy day!

I love this and it's a great big Awww too.

Hubby has an avocado tree that he raised from a pit to a big tree. It finally produces last year.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday my friend. ♥♥♥

Lemons always remind me of Sorrento, Italy, where they make wonderful lemoncello from the lemon peels. I bet your place smells great.

Trees and bees and tiny growing things are an Awww in my book!

I've never had lemons straight from a tree. I am intrigued! Makes me want some lemonade :)

We don't have a lemon tree! Bet the scent is wonderful!

Isabella came before the Tortie colored countertop so of course she was the inspiration! :)

What a great idea; having a lemon tree inside for the fragrance! Happy scoping!
