Grandma Terry’s Lemon Tree in Healdsburge, CA.

Grandma Terry had the most beautiful old Meyer lemon tree. Most likely this tree is thirty years or older it produces lemons almost all year long.  You can pick two paper grocery bags full of lemons and no one would notice that any are gone.  I love lemons and I think I know why.

We are so used to having Meyer lemons. my aunt makes marmalade, we have lemonade often, and my sugar cookies which have lemon rind in them. Lemon water is also very refreshing winter or summer. Must not forget, Chicken Picatta, with lemon juice and capers.

 

 

Meyer lemon tree that has large amounts of lemons on it almost year round, pictured the tree is full or orangy colored lemons.

These lemons have thick rinds, but are also very juicy, they almost look like oranges at times.  Due to the dark yellow rind color, and they are so juicy too almost like oranges.

Cherry blossom and honey bee.

The day before spring was a beautiful day and I photographed bees around the cherry trees. The tree was buzzing with bees, so to say. It was nice to see so many honey bee’s as I read so many article’s about their decline. Go honeybee’s!!! 🙂 We shall have many cherries this year I am sure!
