The Baby here.
Kitties, I am starting to get my bones back when I have the Dreaded Harness on.
And I have decided on a fitting revenge.
I'm gonna TATTLE on Mommy & Daddy.
We have two citrus trees in our backyard, an Orange and a Lemon.
Their blossoms smell wonderful in the Spring.
Here I am undernearth the Orange tree. Do you orange see the Orange hanging down? There's a lot of them!
Citrus fruit takes a loooong time to ripen, Daddy will pick them in late December or early January.
OK, here's the tattle.
This is the Lemon tree when it first came home. Daddy buys a lot of
reject sale plants at the end of the year, and gives 'em his special "Green Thumb" treatment--and they thrive!
Sometimes the plant ID tags are missing.
Sometimes Daddy loses them and forgets what he bought...which was the case with the Lemon tree. Daddy thought it was a LIME tree!
So the "Lime" tree grew and grew, and made fruit for the first time last year.
Mommy & Daddy picked the "Limes" in November, thinking they were ripe.
The Lemon tree in Spring 2010.
Here are some of the "Limes". They were (according to Mommy & Daddy) "Pretty Dang Tart!", although they made a kick-butt margarita.
Then, in February, Mommy made a discovery. She found a few more fruits in the tree, and they were YELLOW! The Lime tree was really a LEMON!
