In the Garden

I bought another lemon tree, this time an Eureka lemon, similar to the Meyer lemons that you buy at the grocery store. Now I have the old Ponderosa lemon tree and this new one. The Pondersosa lemon tree was beat up during one very cold night we had this past winter. I have not seen many flowers on it so far this year but it is still green.  I just have one more fruit tree that I want to buy.

I bought this all yellow-flowered hibiscus to match my lemon tree(s). However, the day after I took this photo, a deer came and ate all the flowers and some leaves off of it. I planted some marigolds around it. Supposedly, deer and other animals do like the marigold smell. I will see if this applies to deer…
