Some of the first lemon blossoms

Some of the first lemon blossoms

 

I enjoy using lemons in my cooking and baking and ever since I read about lemon trees kept in pots in Under the Tuscan Sun I’ve wanted my own potted lemon tree. This spring I went the local nursery and picked up a Meyer Lemon sapling. I was thrilled when it started popping out blossoms. The sweet aroma welcomed me each time I stepped out onto the patio, promising a bounty of fruit. Sadly, I had to remove many of the blossoms since the tree wasn’t large enough to sustain so much fruit.

 

When my first tiny lemons started to appear my mouth watered at the prospect of grabbing fresh fruit any time I needed zest or juice. I waited and waited, watching the fruit grow ever so slowly. It’s now been six months since that first tiny ball emerged and I still haven’t been able to use the fruit.

I noticed the first sign of yellow on one of the lemons about six weeks ago and was sure that I would be able to use it in no time, but not so. I’ve learned that growing lemons is a lesson in patience. Now I have six lemons in various stages of ripening. When the first is finally ready to eat, I know it will be even sweeter for the wait.

BooktoberFest and Chocolate Covered Potato Chips October 4, 2013

My amazing publicist shared this information on her blog and I wanted to share it with my great followers as well. If you are in the Central Florida area I would love to meet you at Booktoberfest tomorrow (October 4) in Mount Dora.

Old Things R New

It’s Booktoberfest time! We are excited at our house about Booktoberfest. Rebekah Lyn will be one of twenty authors at a meet and greet in the quaint town of Mount Dora, Florida. Since this is being held in October, the month of Fall festivals and Halloween, authors and guests are taking up the costume of their favorite book characters.

Rebekah writes Christian fiction and her characters are of the everyday  sort so it has been hard to decide who to portray. Finally she chose  Michelle of Winter’s End, the lead singer and guitar player for her band Tangled Web. It has been fun turning the very professional  Rebekah into a rocker and in the process throw in some clever branding. Pictures will be up at  Rebekah Lyn Books .
