Where else but in sunny California
Where the Lemon Grove is in bloom all year round.
Where the oranges are sweeter than anywhere else.
Where the flowers grow in wild profusion.
And where the trees emit a heady perfume of blossom and fruit.
All lovingly tended by our friends J & B.
At La Casa el Grande, in Rancho Santa Fe.
And my favorite shop is right around the corner.
Trader Joe's, where orchids can be had for a song.
I brought many home.
Even a small lemon tree. Laden with tiny lemons.
Now in my dining room.
Thank you J & B for letting me pick to my hearts' content.
