Remembering Spring

Although these pictures were taken in the Fall, it helps me to remember what the garden looked like before being hit by the recent frosts. I am thankful that it still brings me joy and a sense of wonderment that the lemon blossom becomes a lemon, or that we have been able to harvest arugula, kale, chard, and lettuce that grew from seeds that I held in my hands only a few months ago! Maybe it is my poor memory that allows me to enjoy gardening so much, but at this time of year when the landscape is so bleak, it is easy for me to forget the flowers of Spring.


  1. Hi Jen.
    I just picked my final Mexican Lime today!(Is your picture Meyer Lemons?) We have had a bumper crop of limes and satsumas this many to get through.
    Great photographs.

  2. Yes, they are Meyer Lemons. I would love to plant some satsumas next year. I believe Mexican Limes would freeze to death out here in Oak Hill. I refuse to haul them in and out of the garage during winter. Thanks for stopping by!
