Floral Friday Challenge.

A couple of weeks ago I showed you this plant which was at the time just beginning to bloom

flower_0453It is now, perhaps not quite, in full bloom, but is certainly in bloom.

~~~

flower_0454So I thought A few shots of this mystery plant in bloom appropriate this week.

~~~

flower_0457The pale pink blooms are quite pretty

~~~~~

flower_0458     And the pentagonal yellow centre is unusual to this gardener’s eye.

Floral Friday Challenge.

Last summer was the first time our Lemonade lemon tree produced any quantity of fruit.

Lemon_0337As it turned out we did not eat all of the fruit and some lemons remained on the tree over the winter months.

~~~

Lemon_0340Spring arrived with new blooms and still last seasons fruit remained on the tree.

Every now and again we would use several with a meal and the last of them being picked since Christmas.  They were the sweetest lemons I have ever tasted.

~~~

Lemon_0346 I would like to know if lemons naturally sweeten the longer they are on the tree.

Or is it simply the Lemonade variety we have?

~~~~~

Lemon_0347 Meanwhile the new season’s fruit appears to be progressing well.

Lemons-HomeGrown

In Victoria, we are in the middle of our school winter holiday break which usually means a trip to the nursery to purchase replacement, or new, plants for our garden.

And so it was yesterday….which led to ‘planting Monday’. Planting gives me time to get ‘up close and personal’ with our garden and this morning I became very excited with prospects for future posts.

With trusty camera in hand garden photos were on the agenda late this afternoon. I was not planning to include our little lemon tree, but seeing several lemons with late afternoon sun streaming in on them…well I could not resist.

I can assure you that this lemon was a yummy addition to my evening meal. My family think I am crazy because I eat the whole lemon!
