My cousin in Los Angeles is so lucky.
He has a meyer lemon tree and an avocado tree.
Apparently it’s harvest time in Southern California
because he sent a few samples to my mother.
It’s amazing to imagine harvesting in January
when I look out my window to the snowy scene.
Mom was kind enough to share some with me
and we made a Meyer Lemon Almond Cake.
It was good. I did think it tasted even better
with a jar of the strawberry lavender jam I canned last summer.
