We thought our one hard freeze killed this young lemon tree. Even mature citrus trees in our area suffered from the well named “killing” frost. The little tree sat, leaves withered and dropping, until all life appeared extinguished. So we found new green growth and budding leaves a happy surprise. Our lemon tree is a story of Spring and Resurrection in its leaving and returning,
A welcome sight
Yes. My mind has been on leaving and returning since my Lenten readings from Henri Nousen are from the Prodigal Son story. Peace to you this season, Sonja.
