Lemon tree - end of October

The new flowers on the tree will end up falling off because the bees are gone and therefore they will not pollinate the flowers.

Lots of new lemons 

beautiful healthy lemons 

This is a look at how slow an orange grows . If you look back at my previous post and look at how small the lemons are and compare them to today , You will notice not much grouth in the 4 months .

I am out there in the rain snapping these  pictures ! :) I picked the 1st lemon off this past Sunday .

This is one of our favorite , so colorful!

So pretty ...from yellow to orange

These leaves almost look like flowers

I was amazed at how the bushes on the bottom are totally green yet if you look at the top of the bushes they have turned a red ...so cool

Our grasses are just starting to turn yellow

Autumn is my second favorite season of the year( My favorite being SPRING :))  , not to hot , not to cold . Makes you get ready for the colder days ahead , but what is most fascinating is the Autumn colors that surround us . I think that most of us forget to enjoy the colors as they change around us . 

Today I took a walk with my husband in our back yard to look at all the variety of trees that we have and to see all the beautiful shades of colors  that each tree has. Some are just breathtaking .

Some of the leaves are so vibrant while others are still green .

Flowering Bulbs

   If you live up North like I do (New York) This is the time to get your bulbs in the ground so they will be ready to bloom in the spring . Remember to plant  the different colors in bunches so you get that WOW effect.  

   A few of my favorites are the Iris, Tulips , crocus,Hyacinth,Grape Hyacinth,Daffodil,... okay , what bulb don`t I like ? !!!   

they are easy to plant ... you don`t even have to turn the soil over , most will flourish just by making a hole and placing them in , cover them up and forget about them . When spring comes you will be surrounded by their lovely colors and great scents .

 Love the shiny leaves

My sister N law Carmela gave  me this little tree . 
How neat is that ??? I don`t know if I will ever see a coffee bean from this little tree but I am just happy to have one even if just for an ornamental plant in my house . I love the shiny green leaves .
Its just about ready to be transplanted into a bigger pot so next year I should see more growth .
