Winter brings some cold, dark, and bleak times. Winter also brings some special times - cuddling up to get warm, holidays with family, the freshness after a rain, and even rainbows. One of the things that I look forward to in winter is the ripening of the lemons on my tree. I have a dwarf Meyer lemon in my backyard. The tree grows sweet lemons that remind me of the lemon tree at my childhood home. Dad always talked about the Meyer lemons and how they were the best kind. Turned out that my mother-in-law thought the same thing - they were the star of her Lemon Meringue pie. Its so nice to see the lemons on the tree now -- almost as if they were giant ornaments on the tree.
