Learned over the weekend after moving the citrus trees indoors on Friday to avoid potential wind damage: the blooms of Mexican lime and Meyers lemon smell awful! Don't believe that song "Lemon Tree" about the lemon's flower being sweet. It smells more like a cross between rubber and something rotting.

On the bright side, we have a lemon approaching the size of a golf ball so I look forward to enjoying an extremely juicy lemon in late May or early June.

Once the blooms are past, the trees smell fine. Maybe the songwriter was thinking of that.

How are you and the Little Miss doing?
