One mothers day about 4 years ago
I was gifted with a beautiful and prolific key Lime Tree.
It was big and bountiful...and was carefully planted in the back yard.
It supplied us with juicy, gorgeous yellow/green key limes
just about all year round.
Lime-Ginger soda: 1 lime and a couple of pieces of fresh ginger...add club soda
Heaven in a glass...and good for ya too! Try it...I'll wait.
Anyway, This trusty green friend had the fury of one too many hurricanes unleashed upon it...
It started to produce less and less fruit.
This spring it had a resurgence and gave us about 4 or 5 tiny
delectable limes...I thought It was coming back.
But it didn't
That was it's last valiant effort. It died soon after.
Thinking of something I could do with the kitchen chandelier...
that would last through the holidays, I brought the lime branches inside...
and started adding them to the light.
I present to you....
