This is a lemon. Yep, a regular old lemon. Not some fancy, schmancy lemon. . . just a lemon.
As I was walking part my neighbors house I spotted this beautiful freak of nature on a tree loaded with normal, boring oblong lemons. Gorgeous in its misfit way, freakishly reaching towards me like a hand. I had to have it. (Yes, I asked before picking it. I’m a good neighbor, thank you!)
Every angle is different, every nook and cranny unique. Mother Nature doing her thing.
Ooo that’s a good one too! Love those freakish lemons!

My entry in the Strange Lemon Department looked like it was giving birth to something equally freakish!
It looks like this one wants to be more like the “Buddha’s hand fruit”. Some Chinese/Japanese people consider this a symbol of happiness, good luck and fortune.

My mother grew a similiarly freakish lemon on her plain old Eureka tree.

That thing gives me the heebee jeebees!
My goodness…never seen anything like it! That’s mitosis gone very wrong indeed.
I agree, your photos are lovely 🙂
love it… it’s like staring into the clouds, the longer you look the more you see!

That is FABULOUS! I have some similar, but yours is more intricate.
Your photography is wonderful.
Beautiful. The last one looks like it’s stick its tongues out at you. 🙂
