This tree started out with an abundance of gorgeous fragrant blossom, but seemed to go downhill from there. It got spiders and some sort of mould, which I battled in the summer. It is losing leaves daily, it looks withered and sad, and we were all convinced it was dying a slow and laborious death. However, in spite of all this, the two tiny fruit it had sprouted continued to grow and turn yellow and last week one fell off into my hands. My own little Meyer lemon!
this recipe and am happy to say that it is delicious (although decidedly UN-healthy). It is like having lemon merengue pie whenever you want! I made some scones to eat it with on the weekend, but they disappeared in an instant. I decided to use a crumpet for my impromptu photo shoot instead. Deeelish!
