Welcome Home

See this little lemon tree? It is right in front of where I park my car and I must tell you how happy it makes me feel when I pull into my parking spot and see those little lemons ripening! This pot was there when we moved in and in it was a sad little palm tree that was a bit neglected. Not exactly the welcoming scene I wanted when I returned home every day. I relocated the palm into the ground where it will be much happier and replaced it with this enthusiastic little dwarf lemon tree. It is growing like crazy and I even used a lemon from it the other night! It should bloom soon which will scent the air with that lovely aroma of citrus blooms. Delightful!

That is a nice 'welcome home' every time you pull into your space.

A very cheerful welcome home it is too. That would brighten anyone's day.

I am so jealous of that lemon tree.
Wish I could have that growing happily by my driveway. I completely love it and understand how it cheers you up when you come home.
Also wish you could share the aroma when it blooms. :)
