A generous bounty

Identified the tree I wrote about (From buds to blooms)?
There's this amazing feeling each time you see a flower has bloomed, when a tiny fruit appears on a branch, when it has ripened: nature's generous bounty.
These pictures of our lemon tree, all of course taken with my faithful phone camera, tell a tale of beauty: a rash of pristine white flowers, yellow at the core, changing shape and hue to metamorphose into green little globes that mellow into yellow.
And it's not a seasonal phenomenon. Lemons from this tree continue to grace our table through the year: in salads, as pickle, as nimboo paani...
Nature in pictures, Part IX.

Raring to go.
Prime time.

Laden with green.
Sweetly sour!

  1. That's quite remarkable that you have been able to continuously following the nature around you - in your courtyard and the backyard! I must confess that I am quite dumb in understanding plants and flowers! Of course, I know I am dumb in almost everything else but plants - ugh - I cannot tell the height of ignorance in this matter. Your series could have been an education but I think, only reading won't do for me - I will have to move around! Anyway, coming back to the point, it is a good series and it also show that now you have started writing on the subjects close to your heart! Happy writing!
