the mystique of a lemon tree

Living in southern California,
 most of us have the luxury
of having a lemon tree or two 
growing in our yards.

With our Mediterranean climate, 
they are so easy to grow, 
look beautiful, and, of course, 
bless us with their harvest.

And they pair perfectly in the garden with culinary 
herbs like rosemary, thyme, oregano and lavender.
Here are some of my favorite lemon tree 
vignettes from California and Italy.


Don’t you love how lemons 
can create such a festive look too?

ciao! fabiana

Reminds me of growing up in So Cal, with lemon trees at almost each house. My cousin and I used to eat them with salt in my mom's 1965 Mustang, listening to the radio!
