A Mediterranean Orchard

I have hated this past winter, it seemed to go on forever and, despite the lack of snow, has been mighty cold. So, to cheer myself up, I've planted a Mediterranean orchard. Even though I don't have a garden.

On my living room window sill I now have a lemon tree

an olive tree

and a fig tree.

These are making me very happy, as will the avocado (if I manage to sprout the stone!)

I'm really looking forward to drinking a G&T with a slice of homegrown lemon, while nibbling on homegrown figs and olives, and knitting. I think the avocado may take some time...
