257 – Lemon zest

Our lemon tree is finally fruiting this year. I believe it has fruited before however the indifference of the previous owners and the unforgiving nature of the local clay has meant it has taken some nurturing to encourage, first leaves, then blossoms, and now fruit. A fruit tree, a citrus fruit tree, and in particular, a lemon tree, with fruit gladdens my heart like money in the bank. I love the fragrance of lemon – natural, real lemons, not that nasty lab lemon beloved of chemical manufacturers everywhere. I created a painting at school inspired by the fragrance of lemons in the morning, and the flavour of dew licked off the fruit. When I shut my eyes I can see the painting and I can taste the lemons.

36. Every day be still. Connect to your inner being. Listen and be guided by it.
