It was a wonderful blue sky, however, very cool for this time of year here. Today is was only 73ºF/23ºC., although, in a couple of days it's suppose to be around 80 - 85ºF / 27 - 30ºC. I can't wait! :>)

The lemon-scented Geraniums grow wild here. I think I've posted pics of them in the past.

We do also have tons of lemon trees which grow neighbors give me bags of lemons every year. I squeeze and freeze them for lemonade or cooking.
