This Might Be The Year!

Oh, my citrus trees are in full bloom and my yard smells wonderful! I just can't get enough of it! I was exploring my garden, checking in on things this morning and I am so excited to report that my pink lemon tree is finally blooming!
We've had it for two years now and it has grown some nice foliage, but never really bloomed. I was about to give up on it.
I am so excited about the blooms, but I'll be even more excited if we get a couple of pink lemons this year! That means next year, as in December 2012, we might actually have enough lemons to make pink lemonade.

Dang.

I am not a patient girl.

The waiting is so. hard.
But,
I think it will be worth it.

I think my envy of your citrus trees is well documented :) I really hope you get to make pink lemonade soon. And yeah, gardening...patience...it's hard.

Maybe I'll just have to grow apples or peaches. I don't think their blooms can compare to those of citrus but I'll give it a shot.

I know what you mean. I had asparagus in the yard. It takes seven years for it to grow. I got three spears of it before we had to move.

Oh Amy! I hope you do grow a fruit tree :) I want to hear its whole story, from branch to bud to fruit!

Love the aroma! We have it too...it's wonderful! I have a persian pomegranite that is yet to bloom and a japanese loquat. It's so hard to wait! But we should have quite a crop of peaches later this year..they are about the size of a nickle now!

Pomegranate! I'm so jealous! That's on my list of plants to acquire over the next couple of years. Please keep me posted about how well it grows!
