When Mother Nature Does Whatever The Hell She Wants

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.

    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.

    I agree, your photos are lovely 🙂
