Lemon in autumn by Juliet Batten | 20, May, 2013 | Uncategorized | 15 comments New fruit crowds the lemon grove: unseemly jostling. Boronia leaves fan out against a terracotta step. Flame tree turns lemon-leafed this bright autumn. 15 Comments Max on 21/05/2013 at 00:11 All that yellow is quite invigorating for the eye! Its all red and pink here, to clauds delight x Reply juliet on 21/05/2013 at 03:43 It is Max, it brightens me up. Nice to see you visiting. Thank you. Reply Hilary Melton-Butcher on 21/05/2013 at 09:15 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 Reply Hotly Spiced on 21/05/2013 at 09:52 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 Reply Penny O'Neill on 22/05/2013 at 00:50 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. Reply juliet on 22/05/2013 at 01:54 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? Reply juliet on 22/05/2013 at 01:56 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.

And those lemons look so juicy and yum! 🙂 Reply juliet on 22/05/2013 at 07:14 * 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. Reply Lynley on 22/05/2013 at 07:38 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. Reply juliet on 22/05/2013 at 08:20 *Lynley, it is refreshing, and it’s surprising me right now. Reply Friko on 22/05/2013 at 19:47 I keep forgetting, your seasons are all WRONG ! Or maybe mine are? Reply juliet on 22/05/2013 at 22:26 * 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. Reply valeriedavies.com on 28/05/2013 at 04:45 wish you had a like button Juliet, I’ve been through so many of these lovely blogs, and would have pressed a like button in leuie of a love button !!!
