#1,2,3 this morning. Just beautiful!

 

It is so rewarding to see these seeds germinate, to see growth from something that I would have just thrown in the garbage.  I know lemon trees will take years before they fruit.  They might not even bear fruit in our tropical climate, or in my balcony/rooftop/home for that matter.  But I am excited to see them grow.  I’ve read somewhere that their leaves smell great.  That is something I will look forward to!
