Lemon in autumn

 New fruit

crowds the lemon grove:
unseemly jostling.
Boronia leaves
fan out
against a terracotta

 Flame tree turns


 this bright

    Hi Juliet – I used to love my lemon tree in South Africa – tiny, but necessary and then I had just enough lemons!! They were gorgeous – an old tree … with lovely juicy fruits ..

    Cheers Hilary

    I love the lemons. Amazing there are so many at this time of the year. I would love to have a lemon tree. The Autumn weather looks very good xx

    If only we could grow them this far north, Juliet. I would grow them in a heartbeat as I love lemons, now, even more so for the color you display.

    Hilary, I can imagine how you must miss that tree. Here in NZ we nearly all have a lemon tree; in fact I can’t bring myself to buy them. I guess they won’t grow in England?

    Charlie, you could probably have a lemon tree in Sydney. I miss them when they are off season, but now we are going to have plenty.

    *Penny, I can imagine how you would love to have lemons at the Cutoff. New varieties are being developed that grow in a pot, but I guess your winters would be just too cold.

    Thanks for visiting Hilary, Charlie and Penny.

    Autumn, though hast thou beauty too.

    Keats was indeed correct.

    What beautiful, warming photos. And those lemons look so juicy and yum! 🙂

    * Judy, thanks for visiting; nice to see you here. Yes, Keats was so eloquent about autumn. I’ve always thought of it as mellow in colour, but the lemon coming through was a bit of a surprise.

    We are so used to gold being one of the predominant colours of autumn but you are spotting lemon everywhere.

    Lemon is such a refreshing colour.

    *Lynley, it is refreshing, and it’s surprising me right now.

    I keep forgetting, your seasons are all WRONG !

    Or maybe mine are?

    * Hi Friko: not wrong, just the opposite! My first book was about reversing the dates to fit our southern hemisphere seasons. It’s called ‘Celebrating the Southern Seasons’, and was a great relief to readers in New Zealand, to restore the original alignment of festivals such as winter solstice etc.
