A Lemon Tree

My trip to Italy two years ago spawned a new found appreciation and love for lemons.  Before, I thought lemons were just an incredibly sour and bitter member of the citrus family, but when I returned from Italy, I had a epiphany that lemons hold a huge role in flavoring food from dinner to dessert.  They can also be used to create a beautiful table setting.   Ever since we moved, I have been looking to purchase a lemon tree to place in our living room or bedroom.  But much to my surprise, my present from my boyfriend, John for my 29th birthday was a Dwarf Italian Lemon Tree. I cannot wait until it begins to fruit.  May life bring me many, many lemons.
