When life gives you lemons...

Hi all,
Wow, I have to say that I've really neglected my blog for the past several weeks. Things have been hectic around here, so I've just not taken the time to do any blogging.
With the Holidays around the corner, I'm sure it's going to get even busier but I'll try to do better on posting.

Although, I did want to share a photo of the lemons that our trees produced this year. Oh my, we got the most that we've ever had, the weather must of been just perfect. Remember my post HERE about all the blooms that were on the trees. Well, a lot of the time the intense heat does something to the trees or Spring time storms knock many of the blooms off but this year everything seemed to work out perfect for an abundance of lemons. Yay!!
Just look at those gorgeous beauties! In the photo, that's two bushel baskets FULL. 

Lemons fresh picked
We also have an Orange tree, we ended up getting 3 oranges. Can you see one of them sitting in the back basket? The Orange tree didn't do so well, but wow....look at those lemons. Now, I've got to get busy juicing them. If you lived closer, I would share some of the abundance with you. 
What's that saying? When life gives you lemons...make lemonade. Guess I'll be busy making plenty of lemonade for the next couple of days. I do make a fabulous lemon sauce to go over pasta, I think I'll make it this week. Hopefully, I'll remember to take photos to share with you all.

Thanks so much for stopping by
Hope you have a wonderful day!

From the Heart,


  1. I would love to have a lemon tree. There is nothing like fresh squeezed lemonade.

    Enjoy a glass for me!

  2. Wow! What a lot of lemons! Your tree was very 'fruitful' this year :) Enjoy your lemonade!

  3. Wow! How awesome to have a lemon tree. Home made lemonade with fresh picked lemons is the best. Enjoy!

  4. Looking at your lemons reminds me of the tree I use to have, it never bore that many lemons but boy did it make good lemonade :-)

  5. Hey girl! Where you been??? Hope all is well!
