The zest for lemons all began with the purchase of this planter box.
The color palette was so sweet and refreshing I simply needed to spread it around.
Like in the flower beds . . .
I’m certain the birds will appreciate it . . .
The home of my (soon to be) Herb garden
Now, is this bench inviting or what?
I’m not one to wear a lot of yellow but after all the gardening and painting, I couldn’t resist.
This is my way of taking a fancy dress down a notch and making it a more casual, go anywhere kind of dress.
This is a bit more elegant, great choice for summer weddings.

*This is my favorite: mix 8 drops of lemon oil, 1 cup of luke warm water,
1Tbl. honey and rub it on your hands and feet at night. You will wake in the morning with skin as soft as a babies.
Do you have any known secrets for using lemons?
Have you used this color palette in your yard or better yet with an outfit?
I do believe I’m now heading out for an ice cold glass of lemonade.
Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful day.
