Yes, this is the time of year when we really enjoy living in Arizona. While many of my friends and family are battling the ice and snow, I'm enjoying the warm, sunny weather.
I even have lemons ripening on my tree:
Earlier this week, I enjoyed a tall glass of Diet Coke with freshly squeezed lemon plucked right from my tree! How cool is that?
Here are a few lemons that are hanging low to the ground. They're HUGE!
Why did we plant a lemon tree in our backyard? Well, mainly just because WE CAN! I'm glad there are only a few lemons this year, because I can't imagine what we'd do with a whole bunch of them, other than start up our own lemonade stand.
