Wonder how they grew
Large lemons on the roadside
In a narrow crack
I am continually amazed by nature too.
And we are part of it.
Ooooh – I bet that smells soooooo goooood!
I picked it, sliced it, and put it in hot tea. The smell came up with the steam to the nose. Yes, it was soooooo gooooood.
Lemons are tough, aren’t they? I’ve seen them bloom and grow fruit though the harshest winters…. I always thought it prophetic, in a way, to note the last remaining fruit tree, cultivated by the Kevin Costner character, in the movie “Waterworld”, was a small lemon/lime tree…
Small slices of life
come to mind with each tart sniff.
Metaphors for life.
gigoid, the dubious
I couldn’t even dream of them growing around here. But the reality is I saw them ripe on a tree growing in a tiny area (much less than a foot square yard) of soil. I picked one of them, sliced, and put it in tea. It was a little strong in sourness but also strong in aroma. Really good!
Serendipity makes for good flavor, yes? The delight of finding it in such an unlikely spot added sweetness to the tea, I would guess…
I’m reminded that joy and beauty in life can be found in the most unlikely places, and experiences, especially when we aren’t looking for them…
Take care, my friend…
Yes. I can’t agree with you more. Seems to me everything I experience in life is serendipitous, such as making friend with someone on the other side of the globe whom I’ve never met before, etc. 🙂
