White flowers

DSC_1851

I’m excited! One of the little citrus plants my partner bought a few weeks ago has produced flowers.¬† We knew it could generate fruit as it has already got some. But I wasn’t expecting it to flower. As soon as I can I want to put it outside in the sun, we are getting a summerhouse so it can go in there and stay walm. At the moment it’s next to a sunny windowledge but I want the flowers to be pollenated.

Does anyone have any knowledge about keeping citrus? We did grow a plant from a pip once. It grew to 2 foot high but only ever had leaves and eventually died. Thanks in advance for any info.

An ode about the heat and fires around the world this year.

 

Sun shines high in the sky,

leaves turn  so crisp and dry,

Green turns to Brown,

Frazzled flowers wilt.

 

Sun shines up in the sky,

Birds will still try to fly,

Some fall right down

We feel no guilt.

 

Sun flies high in the sky,

Land parched and very dry,

Fires burn a town,

ashes on all that’s built.

 

Sun heats the air and sky,

Animals start to die,

No grass has grown,

No waters lilt.

 

Sunburnt we watch the sky,

Eyes have no tears to cry,

Desert puts on her crown,

No drop of rain is spilled.
