For those of you who weren't here from her beginning, Leona is my potted dwarf Meyer lemon tree, named after my beloved mother-in-law, whose maiden name was Leona Meyer. No, I do not name all of my plants. This one is special, as she's my third lemon tree. The first two were planted, in the ground, in Arizona, and didn't survive our summers away from them. This one will be kept potted, and travel back and forth with us.
July 5, 2010: At 52 days of age, Leona had grown to 11-inches, but was showing signs of stress. Time for a dose of fertilizer!
July 18, 2010: Leona is showing her first flower buds at two months of age, and has grown another inch, to 12-inches tall.
July 31, 2010: The fertilizer has done its work well. Just a few days later, she is 14-1/2 inches tall and sporting sweet smelling blossoms. However, they failed to pollinate. That's probably a good thing, given her small size.
