End of summer

We had friends over for a BBQ so the boys made lemonade with the last of our lemons.

I still can't get over having my own lemon tree - there was one outside the rental I lived in when I first came the the US and it seemed so exotic. I had tried to grow citrus in my conservatory when I lived in the UK but never with any success - so was thrilled to find a tree loaded with lush lemons in arms reach of my porch. When we bought this house almost the first thing we did was plant a lemon tree and an orange. The lemon is doing better and we get a reasonable crop these days so I almost never have to buy a lemon.
