First "Ade"

When life gives you lemons...
This sorry looking tree looks as if it's been struck by lightning on numerous occasions, but looks can be deceiving - amazingly enough it produces a plethora of mouth-watering'd never believe it!  Not to mention the size of some of them, one (the mutant) grew as large as a small grapefruit last year.  Amongst all the other uses for this magnificent fruit, tis the season for fresh lemonade & slurpees!  

Thank goodness my sweetheart is as tall as he is, otherwise I'd have some difficulty in the picking process.  These beauties about to embark on a short journey to the destination, our bellies.
