Living On Oxygen for Life
I’m really surprised that one of my trees (my lime tree) has grown flowers again! I’m not known for having a green thumb but since my husband drilled drainage holes in the bottom of both pots, my trees are taking off and budding new leaf growth. Yippee! Now the lime tree has a clump of about four flowers. Maybe I’ll actually get some limes this year after all!
My lemon tree is slower at growing. I no longer have to bring them indoors. It’s in the mid 90 degrees and I think they are safe from cold weather now.
Since it’s so hot during the daytime, I’ve started to get my body acclimated to the heat before the Summer heat kicks in full force. I try going outside for very short periods of time (about 5 minutes) at first in the morning. It’s much harder to breathe when it’s hot outside. So, I really take it slow to get myself use to it. I try to go outside to walk around in the yard with my dog, Rocco, 2 or 3 times a day.
Ooooh! I hope I get some limes from my trees. I’m craving some guacamole!
