when life hands you lemons

I recently sought out some of my own lemons. Actually make that a TREE. Yes, a lemon tree. And it’s allllll mine. I’m pretty proud of its bounty, might I add. Six lemons are currently hanging from the branches of my latest splurge, much to the angst of my little girls’ curious fingers.

Oh, and while I was in the spending mode I picked up a mandarin too.

I’ll back up a little….

It was my birthday a few days ago and I received a couple cheques in the mail over this last week that were aching to be spent. A couple weeks prior I was shooting a family session at a local greenhouse and discovered their tropical exhibit that also included a whole host of citrus trees. Limes, lemons, oranges and avocados were for the choosing. AND I also happened to notice a big stack of bright ceramic pots.


I’ve been wanting to add some greenery to my home for a while now but truth be told, don’t have the greenest of thumbs. Most plants have perished due to being monsooned (yes, that’s a word) or receiving an unintentional drought. So, the idea of trying something a little more laborious might seem foolish to some but there’s no doubt in mind I’ll try my darndest to keep these green babies alive as long as possible. I’ve done a little research and feel somewhat informed. So here’s to embarking on a little horticultural journey that I plan to share with you. 🙂

Of course I snapped some photos. (Side note: I wish photos could capture smell. The blossoms are delightful. And also to my delight I noticed that even the leaves have the most heavenly scent when scrunched, a discovery when I pruned off a ripped leaf.)


P.S. Yes, one pot doesn’t fit into it’s ceramic counterpart. I’ll figure that out eventually.

P.P.S. I am aware that some of the labels have yet to be removed from the pots. I was excited to take photos while these gems were in their prime. Haha!

P.P.P.S. I plan to add moss over the soil to pretty it up a little.

P.P.P.P.S. I also plan to add rocks and water into the plastic catch thinga-ma-jigs to provide extra moisture/humidity for these trees.
