Citrus reveal party. We moved into a house in May with a diligent little citrus tree in the yard that looks like it’s been cut down a few times but kept coming back. When it bloomed we compared the flowers to those on trees at the nursery. Our best guess was that it’s a lemon tree. But we were prepared to love and squeeze and savor its fruit whatever it might be. It turns out it’s a lime tree, and to be honest that’s what we were hoping for.
