My lemon tree
I stayed with my sister for a weekend recently and was enchanted by her lemon tree in a pot at her front door. When the boys asked what I would like for Christmas this year I thought, “Yes! I know exactly what I would like!”
Giancarlo and I spent the morning together yesterday picking out the perfect tree and a beautiful glazed pot.
We got punnets of petunias to go in terracotta pots in front, and we put my geraniums on either side and the effect, on my front porch, is just charming.
When I look at it, I see... scented blossoms on the lemon tree and cascades of pale purple petunias...
