Happy Meyer Lemon Tree Day...
I have a Meyer Lemon tree tucked between my house and the fence that protects me from my neighbor. Somehow the location protects it from the heavy frost that settles on Carmichael in late winter/early spring. It's a beauty year round and produces year round. Meyer Lemon are special. They are a cross between a lemon and an orange. They're kind and gentle, very thin skinned, beautiful, sweet...perfection. That's why you'll never find them at the market. They don't travel well. I'm so fortunate to have a gorgeous tree filled with them. A few years ago I did a drawing (unfinished) of my Meyer Lemon Tree and the oil I dreamed would just drip from them!!!
