garden tuesday...lemon tree


a lisbon

lots of spiny thorns - sure has

 thin skin and thick pith - yep

flowers and fruits at the same time - pretty neat that

fruits twice a year - true, a good crop too

grows to a height of 8m - sure does

rumour has it that it was brought to australia by a portugese immigrant

 probably just an internet furphy




makes nice lemonade, lemon curd and lemon meringue pie

this is my entry for Garden Tuesday

  2. I am so envious! I buy lemons every week and sit them on my counter to use for cooking and to just look at and enjoy. I would LOVE to have my own lemon tree!!! Thanks for linking up!

  5. Lovely lemons! It really does have a thick skin. I'm wanting citrus trees but first I have to find a place to put them inside for the winter!

  7. Not only can you make tasty treats with them, but the foliage is beautiful! I've never seen one, and here in North Texas, I'm sure I never will! ---"Love"

  10. Mmm, I can smell it! "Lemon tree is very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet, but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat!" Do you know this song?
