Does This Really Mean...

Do you know what these flowers are?


They are flowers on the lemon tree I bought and planted about twenty years ago.  We've never gotten any lemons from the tree.  I've never seen so many flowers on the tree.  I hope that means that the tree will finally bear fruit.

The flowers are only on one section of the tree, but that's better than no flowers at all.  There's another citrus tree right near it.  I think my son planted it from a seedling he had found.  It also has some flowers.  Could this year be the year?

May G-d bless us all with fruitfulness, joyous occasions and good health.

You didn't get any fruit. That could mean that your tree is a lemon.

I know nothing about lemon trees. But I do know Israel got more rain this year, so maybe if you say the special lemon tree song and do a little dance ... why don't you ask someone who knows Israeli botany?

Leora, the next door neighbor built a large structure which may have protected the tree from the winds. I didn't know that it was supposed to be planted in a protected spot.
