Lemon Picking In Our Garden

We had some freezing temperatures this morning in Florida and by this afternoon I just had to get out into the sun. With a basket in the one hand and my camera in the other I went out into our lovely garden and picked some lemons. What a privilege and joy of life it was to pick some lemons in my own garden! I am so grateful that I could do that and would love to share some pictures with you...

An orange tree can be seen in the background...

I just love lemons and I have discussed the health benefits of lemons and extra virgin olive oil in one of my earlier posts in this blog at

May you have a wonderful and blessed 2011!

  1. Ingrid...where have you been? I have missed your gorgeous posts! Your lemons look perfect. Excellent photographs.

    Happy New Year to you too!

  2. Hi there, oh boy, those lemons look like I could just reach in and get a hold of them and set them on my counter...they are perfect and beautiful! Did I mention that I LOVE lemons? And anything made with lemon, I use it everyday :D

  3. You can't beat freshly picked Citrus right off your own trees... alas, our new Lemon Tree croaked in last year's fierce Summer heat, as did our Raspberry Bush *but it produced fruit at least before it went to Raspberry Heaven*... but the Blood Orange, Valencia Orange and Pink Grapefruit are doing well and we got some fruit off two of them in the 1st year! *whoo hoo*
