In the eastern US, especially in the southern Appalachians, these magnolias are truly the giants of the tree world. Seeing one 'unclothed' gives a true impression of its size. And just imagine watching her dress in green finery come spring. Photo by David Glass.
Wasn't that Trini Lopez who made the song famous back in the days of folk singers and simpler times? If you remember Trini, check the obituary columns to be sure you are not mentioned - LOL! But seriously, folks... If you are here in Southern California and don't have a lemon tree, that must mean your nearby neighbors do. Because one tree usually supplies enough lemons for everybody on the block. That means every seafood dinner, every pitcher of fresh lemonade, every apple pie [the juice keeps the apples from turning brown] and every martini with a twist for the entire block.
Join us on Saturday, January 14th for a free and fun workshop.
We'll be demonstrating proper fruit tree pruning techniques for prettier, healthier and more fruitful trees.
And everyone gets a chance to practice on our trees. See our Facebook page for details under Events.

When the Arnolds moved to Encinitas, they left family and friends far behind back east. Imagine how much they'll enjoy this loving housewarming gift. It's a gorgeous Patio Lemon Tree [Eureka] that will remind them for years to come that they are loved and missed. Think there might be a lemonade stand in those boys' future!
Autumn always seems to arrive bringing a sense of astonishment. Can we really be near the end of the year already?
Even though Southern California is known to be perpetually sunny, there really are distinct seasons. Just ask any gardener.
And that's the glory of deciduous trees, like this magnificant dawn redwood at Bressingham Gardens north of London. While
our evergreens, like citrus, are often subtle in how they mark the seasons, the deciduous trees give every season all they've got.

Isn't the tree tag so cute?
It's getting close to apple season - shorter days, cooler nights and back-to-school ads everywhere you look.
These two cuties have their very own apple tree - a 'Pink Lady' from TWTC. They will remember picking their own apples right off the tree long after they've gone off to make their way in the world. Imagine a birthday gift that creates memories like that!
Getting out early has too many benefits to mention but a spectacular sunrise is one of the best.
You can't help but feel grateful and blessed when a day starts out like this. Sunsets are easy -
day is done, gone the sun... Sunrise takes a bit more effort - try it some day soon.
It's been a few years since Karen lost her sweet dog, Zoe. But every day, "Zoe's Tree" reminds her how much she is loved and Karen smiles at the memories of good times with Zoe by her side.
