Meyer Lemons

My Meyer Lemon tree is in bloom! The smell is incredible. I also have a few baby lemons that have started to develop. It is so nice to see, especially in the midst of a winter storm.

And more blossoms on the way...

Snowbells Already?!

Wow, the photo was taken today, January 12. These are snowbells (Latin name Leucojum aestivum) and here in Wisconsin they typically bloom in February. Last year the ones in my backyard bloomed on February 17th. Today I was a little surprised that they are already about an inch or two above ground. However our weather has been warmer than usual in the past few years. In any case, it is a joy to see them and know that the sun is staying out longer and that spring is on the way!
