A Splash of Sunny Color and Lively, Citrus Flavor Brightens Grey Mid-Winter Days and Helps Chase Away the Blues…

Imagine waking up to the scent of citrus blossoms; their sweet, delicate fragrance perfuming the air. Picture yourself stepping through the door and into the next room; plucking a plump, juicy lemon, glowing orange or shimmering lime from the branches of your own tiny citrus tree…

Slice a bit of fresh lemon for your morning tea. Close your eyes and breathe deep. Instantly, the fragrance transports you: grey clouds and dingy snowbanks disappear as you are whisked away to a sunny Mediterranean terrace; sampling a zesty lemon granita as the vespas fly by…

    I have been so excited about this issue. Cannot wait to get out and find it. In my grove I have several Meyer lemon trees and they are the best. I shall have to try potting citrus in N.H.

    Enjoying the “fruits of your labour”. HA, HA! Sorry, I just saw that. Missed it altogether yesterday.

    Tried to find the online version tonight, but had no luck: VERY frustrating! Read the article in MSL and I must say that your blog is so much more you… they seem to have edited all of your personality out. Perhaps they’ll allow more latitude as time goes along? In the meantime, I’ll remain here with you on the web. xo D

    Love your mug, BTW. Virginia’s glaze is beautiful!
