Gorb-lime-y!

The lime tree that Laura of Gravy Lessons brought me at the Fall Plant Exchange is flowering. It's in a rather inaccessible corner of the greenhouse. I've watered it a few times this winter, but this is the first time I've seen flowers. I bet it's been budding up for a while, there are quite a few.

I wonder if I'll get any limes? On warm days I leave the door to the greenhouse open, and I've seen a few bees buzzing in and out.

  2. Surprises are popping up everywhere. It must be a treat just to have the flowers, imagine how grand it will be to have fruit!

  6. Oh now having fresh citrus is one reason i would love a greenhouse. And fresh limes...yum. Beautiful flowers and I bet them smell divine.

  7. I'm delighted to see it look so happy in your greenhouse. When I was hauling it in my car with Barnaby, I doubted its survival. :)
