Spring and Meyer Lemon Trees

Hi Neighbors!

We are having a great time now that spring seems to have come upon us.  We even have a few flowers blooming, and my daughter is planning her garden.  I just have to tell you about a Meyer Lemon Tree that we received from Fast-Growing-Trees.  Right now it is on my front porch.  We are trying to decide whether to plant it in the yard or to just put it in a nice pot that we can move in next winter.  I am thinking more towards a nice pot.  Right now it does not look like much, but it appears very healthy.  See the pictures below.

Here is my little tree.  Please remember that it had leaves when it came in!
Here is what my little tree will eventually look like!
Let me tell you one way that I know I received a healthy plant.  The tree came in right after we left on our trip to Florida.  Unfortunately I was not aware I would miss it.  Anyway, we have a friend who collects our mail and packages and puts them in the house for us.  He did not open and water the Meyer Lemon Tree for 2 weeks.  He then opened it and watered it for me.  It still looks good.  I am amazed!  I was afraid I might have to write a post about my poor, dead tree.  I can't wait to see how well it grows, and to get some lemons from it.
It is growing!

Are you planning to purchase some fruit trees this year?  Be sure to check out  They also have evergreens, shade trees, flowering trees, privacy trees, and shrubs and hedges.  I have been checking out their site, and they have alot of interesting trees and bushes.  I wouldn't mind a free berry bushes this year!  Be sure before making a purchase that you check out their zone chart that gives you information on which plants will grow in your zone.  They also have a replacement plan should your tree die within 1 year of purchase.  If it dies within 90 days you receive a 75% credit towards new plants, and if it dies after 90 days but within one year you will receive a 50% credit toward future purchases.  Not bad!

I hope my neighbors will take a few minutes and check out  See if they have something you are interested in.  You just might find the plant that you are looking for.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a Meyer Lemon Tree for review purposes.  All thoughts and opinions are entirely mine.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
