Citrus

wp-1456869527153.jpg There are few plants that have as beautiful aroma as a citrus tree.  And this park is full of them.

In the 60s, Peter, Paul & Mary, as well as other groups, did a song called “Lemon Tree“.

“Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.”

Like the words from the song, “the lemon flower is so sweet” the fragrance fills the air for several feet around the trees.
