Last summer, I found a sad little bare root Meyer Lemon tree at Lowe's for 50% off. So, I brought it home and planted it in my big blue glazed planter.
I knew I couldn't plant it in the ground, because North Carolina gets snow and freezes, so my plans were to bring it inside for the winter.
It grew about a foot tall during the summer and in October we noticed some beginning blossoms! We brought it inside and placed it in a sunny window in our dining room. And before long the blossoms opened and the dining room was filled with a beautiful floral scent.
The blossoms started falling off and little green lemons started to appear.
So now it sits here, and we are anxiously awaiting our first lemons. I understand it takes about 7 months for it to grow and ripen.
On a totally separate note, I have graduated from a button down shirt into a t-shirt. It takes a lot of work to get it on but I just feel better in a tee...
Still have bad hair days - due to not being able to blow dry, with one arm....lol.
