“Lemon in Silver” 7x10
I don’t think there is a backyard in Southern California that doesn’t have some kind of a fruit tree in it. Grapefruit, orange, lime, kumquat, loquat, plum, apple, Asian pear. Everybody has a fruit tree. Mine is a lemon tree. The thing is probable 40 years old and stands about 18 feet tall. The tree gets very little water and is only pruned every other year, but despite this neglect it produces an incredible amount of sweet lemons. There are hundreds on it right now. It flowers and bares fruit all year round. I occasionally think about cutting it down but then I would probably miss it.
