And lemon bars.
And lemon cocktails (lemon drops or lemonade + rum + frozen raspberries).
And an egg white + lemon juice face mask.

Our 2 year old lemon tree still only makes about 10 lemons/ year but we make the most of the small crop. And smelling the new blossoms may just be my favorite part.

    Wow, these photos are so inspiring! That and the fact that you can keep a lemon tree alive. ;)
