Lemondrop

It was the middle of the night and outside my window there was a loud, synchronized thud. I knew it was lemons falling from our Lisbon Lemon tree. The next morning, I went around the sideway and collected the lemons that had fallen – there were about a dozen.

Not many people know that you’re not supposed to pick lemons from the tree. This is because they don’t ripen once picked. To achieve full flavour, lemons should fall.

Due to a recent Spring heatwave ( and little rain ), the lack of moisture in the soil had caused the tree to ‘shed some of it’s load’. To let go of what it could no longer support. Interestingly, it doesn’t abort it’s newly formed fruit – just the ones that are close-to-ready.

Q. What do you need to let go of so that something new in your life has a chance to grow?
