Lemony Spring



What a refreshing scent.
I was washing breakfast dishes when my eyes lingered outside the kitchen. That's when I thought: "Hmmm, the backyard lawn needed some watering." I opened the door, put on an old pair of rubber shoes, unrolled the hose, and turned on the faucet. As I got closer to our lemon tree, I had to turn off the water so I could smell the lemon blossoms completely. I even heard a bee buzzing busily.

Spring has really come. While the flowers are announcing that there will be more lemons in the future, the branches laden with fruits are shouting "You don't have to wait. We are right here!"

Lemons in your own backyard, how nice. I'm glad Spring has made its presence strongly felt. Enjoy.

BTW, if you have time, I tagged you again. :) It's a gratitude meme that I hope you will enjoy doing.
