Yellow In My Life


I wanted more yellow in my life
so I planted a lemon tree heavy
with fruit that bent the tiny
branches into cascades.

Lemons took over the green
of the color scheme as they
brightened in the sunbeams.
I won't pick them, for I
want yellow in my life.

What a beautiful plant, Judy. I am glad you have so much yellow in your life. I would eat the lemons though....somehow.

Love the image of cascades of lemons, and more yellow with sunbeams, yellow, a happy color.

Beautiful yellow in your life, beautiful you to bring it in when you need it, and the plant itself is pretty amazing.
