The "orchard" is growing!

The Easter Bunny made an early appearance here and brought me two citrus trees! I have been coveting my neighbor's orange tree and was even gifted some gorgeous Meyer lemons from a friend.

I've been wanting those trees ever since!

These beauties will go out back along with the apple, peach, pear, and pecan trees we already have growing...
I call it "The Orchard".

The Meyer lemon tree already has dozens of blooms on it and I'm bound and determined to get at least one freakin' lemon this season ~ even if I have to hand pollinate every.single.bloom.myself!

I can almost taste that fresh lemonade right now,
or maybe even a little limoncello!
