Lemon Inspired Beauty for the Home ~ Citrus Series

Photo Source

“A Christian, who realizes he has been made in the image of the Creator God and is therefore meant to be creative on a finite level, should certainly have more understanding of his responsibility to treat God's creation with sensitivity, and should develop his talents to do something to beautify his little spot on the earth's surface.”
~ Edith Schaeffer, The Hidden Art of Homemaking


As the season of citrus is passing away to welcome spring, so will these posts. I hope you have enjoyed this series. There are many more ideas but those will be left for another time, another year.  I leave you with the simple idea of using them as a beautifier in your home… (Until they get used, that is!)

    1. We just planted one last year (but are thankful for the neighbors who shared with us)… We will see if it will survive. We haven't had much success with fruit trees :(
