Lemon and lemons

Photobucket
At home, 2010

Weekend Reflections is a weekly Meme hosted by James, Newton Area Photo.

Our Lisbon lemon tree is giving us a lot of lemons this year, each year's prodution is different. Notice the bud announcing already next year’s crop!
At out friends’ house their Ponderosa trees are older but still give huge lemons which are beautiful but full of seeds. These trees are purely ornamental.

  26. Juste ornemental mais au moins peut-on utiliser le zeste ? J'ai des souvenirs émus des "simples" gâteaux au citron, si parfumés, qu'on faisait en Côte d'Ivoire...
