The Lemon Tree And Me…
Yes, we are on the topic of citrus again…I am sorry I just can’t help myself! If you missed the other two posts on this subject, they will be listed on the bottom of this post. The little man took to the beautiful fruit as much as his Grammie and I HAD to show you what his routine is concerning this fruit. First, of all you see how low to the ground they hang, this doesn’t help matters. Very close for little hands to reach and pick one off.
Little Man’s mother told me that he won’t stay AWAY from the lemon tree. No amount of talking will work, he toddles right back to it again and again. Grammie says, “He is Eager.” Mommy thinks he is obsessed♥ I made this photo collage so you can see the steps he goes through. Can you see the reaction on his face when he takes a BIG bite? Wouldn’t you think this would be enough to deter him? NO! He goes right back and does it again! Of course, I think it is adorable and keep laughing very hard and his mother just shakes her head.
Finally, we are able to move him away from the tree, but wait…the lemon has to go with him. I suggested to him that he put it in his bicycle trunk. As you can see from his reaction…he thinks this is a good idea☺The trunk will be a safe place for his lemon.
He had one more thing he had to show his Grammie on her first day at his house. His new fort with a slide attached. Mommy puts him at the top and says, “Are You Ready?” He lights up…Ready… Set…GO!” He pushes off and away he goes. You can see the happy reaction.
The boy has no fear…coupled with a lot of JOY!
As I look over these pictures I was thinking…Why can’t adults take the lemons in their life and still have joy? We can learn so much from children.
My husband just walked into the office and says, our neighbors just dropped off fresh grapefruit and lemons from their trees! Oh be still my heart….we love you J & J♥ What timing is this? I speak of Citrus and it comes forth…
Did you know…starting with the next post…I will be posting tips for bloggers/photographers on every post? Check it out.
Also, don’t forget to check out the other citrus posts…so cute.

Such a adorable kid !!!Brilliant captures!!!
Hi, Laurie–Thanks for signing up for our blog. Great kid pics–and your recent series on Cabbage Key made me think, If I have to endure hot weather I think I’d rather be there than here. Enjoy your grandson–we haven’t quite gotten there yet. Ken
Laurie, these are just beautiful photos of your grandson. I love the angles, the color and how you capture his sweetness. He is a great subject! Thank you so much for visiting my little photography spot. You now have a follower in TX. Hope you and yours enjoy a wonderful week!
Totally adorable! The sweetness oozing from that cute Little Man and that luscious lemon would make the finest, sweetest glass of lemonade on earth. All he’d have to do is stick his finger in it.
I enjoy your work-thanks for reading mine! beebeesworld
Thank you very very much!
What a sweetheart!
I’m a great fan of citrus…I guess mostly because the flowers smell so wonderfully fragrant! Your pictures and posts are just priceless!
A friend of mine has a lemon tree and every time we plan to get together I say don’t forget the lemons! Would we still be friends if she didn’t have a lemon tree???? Life absolutely needs lemons…
These are really good pics! You have captured the essence of the lemon tree! Congratulations!
The taste of life itself, pure and sour ! 🙂
I am a HUGE fan of lemons and a big fan of cute kids too.
I love your website!! Thanks for sharing all the tips, tricks and beautiful photography. Have a great day!

He’s so precious. 🙂
He is adorable and I cracked up at that one picture where he’s sticking out his tongue in reaction ….being a grandma’s a blast / love it 🙂
Oh my…could he be any cuter?! I just love the pics of his reaction to the lemon. Too funny! I also love the look on his face as he went down the slide. Such great photos!
P.S. Thanks for linking up to the GtKY weekend blog hop! 🙂
One of my grans used to love to chew on the lemon slices out of his parents’ tea or water glasses. He would make those same type of faces, but go RIGHT back at it.
Lucky you, a proffering of fresh citrus… I was thinking about marmalade the other day… and your little guy’s face after a tart bite is priceless! Thank you for joining in ‘Rurality Blog Hop #2’ Hope to see you next Wednesday for #3…
so cute, I love fresh lemons!
This is awesome!! Your photography skills are awesome! I’m so jealous of the lemon tree, I want one =)
Oh Laurie this was so adorable…yes wouldn’t that we great if more people didn’t forget how to be more child like! I remember my daughter at that age liking to suck lemons and eat raw garlic and spoonfuls of salsa! haha Have a wonderful weekend!
I would LOVE to live in a part of the world where citrus fruits grew…. I love eating them and I am a complete sunshine addict!
His innocent smile is very contagious!

His face, biting into the lemon…precious!
What a sweet little boy you have there, Laurie! And yes they do get attached to odd things. Kobi says hi … Thanks for sharing in Walk and Click Wednesdays!
I’d think a lemon would be too tart. well, he won’t get scurvy!
ROG, ABC Wednesday team
So adorable! I remember those days. My son loved to eat lemons- peel & all. Now he’s allergic.
He has such beautiful blue eyes. Love that lemon face–lol!
You have such a knack catching these sorts of exploration moments with Little Man Laurie 🙂
Gorgeous photos. And it’s definitely true that we could all learn a lot from children, they see so much wonder in the world. X
Adorable with the lemon! Your photography is phenomenal Laurie. So natural!
I love this! What a cutie. We used to entertain ourselves by giving our kids lemon wedges in restaurants. They made some crazy faces after tasting, but also kept going back for more. So funny.
I fall in love with the Little Man with every photograph I see of him. He is so adorable! I am hooked! Give him lots of hugs from us!
Thank you my DEAR friend!!!!
OH, what memories you will have with these photos! I do believe you are raising a lemonade maker.
Adorable pictures and fun post! Reminds me of loving lemon drops candy as a kid. No matter how sour, could not get enough of them. So wonderful to see the joy the lemon tree is bringing to everyone, in very different ways! 🙂
You are SO right…just like the lemon drops and guess who loved those…oh goodness his grammie. SO this is where he gets it LOL! I think you just gave me an aaah…moment!
My granddaughter LOVES lemons! Your pictures (and your grandson) are precious! Come link up with me at NanaHood.com if you have time. Blessings to you!
That sour face is absolutely adorable!
He is such a Ham, love his smiles!!
Such a lovely child. His innocence really shows through his smiles.
Your photo’s really capture the joy of the day. I guess adults have too many concerns most of the time to throw lemons in the air and live with abandon…but it sure looks like fun.
That sour face picture is priceless.
He is SUPER CUTEEEEE!! I Love his eyes! ❤
Thank you very much!
It’s so funny to see his reaction when he takes a bite ! Beautiful photos Laurie !
There is so much love in your pics!!!! And you are so right….Lemons will be there, it is the same if we are happy about it or not…So, better to take them and to have joy…May be an orange is awaiting behing…:)
Thanks for your posts!
His little face just makes me smile!
Laurie, this is so beautiful. And this boy — oh, what a sweetie pie. Your photos are absolutely lovely!
What a beautiful child. His eyes are so blue!
Laurie, I could see a good resemblance to you in the fourth picture of your grandson. It must be the smile! 🙂
Blessings ~ Wendy
Aaah, really? I love when people can see some resemblance with the two of us. It makes me feel even more closer to him. God works in such mysterious ways…I never in a million years saw my life with a baby boy in it. What a blessing he is.
That fourth picture really shouted out the resemblance to me. I had not thought about it before then. I have a photo of me on my tricycle that people think is our youngest son when I show it. We both had blond hair as toddlers, and we both have dimples when we smile. I had always wanted a daughter (which we got after the boys were born) and I have to say that I am soooo glad we had sons too. I adore them! I enjoy seeing both sides of the family show up in their facial expressions. We are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’!
I can’t believe he bit into that lemon!! He’s too cute.
Gotta’ LOVE the sour face! 🙂
He seems to like the lemon at the end. He is so cute.
It made my mouth water with those lemons. But the baby looks like him.
He is so precious! They always want what they shouldn’t have, don’t they?! He has such a cheeky look. Our Little Man tries to eat lemons whole as well, daft thing! Abigail x
what sweet pictures
Oh what sweet, sweet photos of your “little man” what a delight!!
Great photos Laurie. Someone here looks like grandma.
Aaaahh…I take that as the highest complilment, because I think he is So cute! Thanks for the sweet visits.
have I mentioned how I adore lemons? Ever since my visit to the Amalfi coast in Italy i have been obsessed with them. I decorate with yellow and blue and lemon accents. These shots sing to me!!
No i have never known this about you…but now I do. I bet the blue and yellow together is great together.
He looks a really happy chappy!
He has such an adorable face! And I love lemons.
Now for some reason this little guy reminds me of his Grammie! I can see he’s going to be quite adventuresome! Love his expressions
Cutest little man with shocking sour puss face. Love it!
Hahaha…So cute…Love doing that to my kiddos
Little man looks good in blue.
Thanks for sharing.
Happy Blue Monday, Laurie
He is adorable ~ but eating a lemon? Wow! ~ great shots!
