The branches are bowed with the weight of the sun-filled fruit.
When the sun comes up and the sky glows pink and peach, the tree is luminous...like liquid gold poured onto shiny green leaves.
Our neighbors all share in the bounty of the lemon tree. We make pies and lemon bars and lemonade and freeze the rind and juice against the summer when all the luscious fruits whither away in the heat.
And each year at Christmas I gift my friends with boxes of fragrant yellow orbs strewn with red and white peppermint candies...a gift sure to bring a smile to snow and ice-bound loved ones.
In the spirit of the season, I would like to do a little lemon giveaway today for you, my Alphabe-Thursday friends. I will choose several names from those linked to the meme for this week. Please let me know in your comment if you would like to receive lemons. I will draw the names on Saturday and get them mailed out the same day, priority, so you will have them to scent your home with the fragrance of citrus, sunshine from an Arizona friend.
Thanks for visiting my Alphabe-Thursday "L" post.
