Morning Miscellany ... Beautiful Blossoms

Make Time for Small Reflections
Scroll down for Ruby Tuesday, My World,
and Outdoor Wednesday


One last ripe lemon
fell from my tree yesterday
and new green ones are

ripening as the
tree bursts forth in new blossoms

for more summer fruit

I like what you've done with your photoshop technique on the flowers. Very pretty. (My first time with MYM and first time to your site - I'm in SoCal, too!)

You capture so nicely the flowers in the sunny Golden State. Roses are red, of course, but any derivative of red, no matter how light a tone is just fine!

Lemons how cool is that!! Now I get the lyrics from an old song."Lemon tree very pretty..." Do you know of it?
We do not grow tropical trees here except indoors.

Bobby Bare has the lyrics for the song.
