Whale season is about to start in Hervey Bay.

The good news is that the numbers have increased mightily since these wonderful creatures are no longer hunted.

They seem to be very inquisitive and often come up close to the boats to eyeball the people watching them.

Thanks for the wonderful photos Australia.com

This is my little Lemonade tree 
Or rather this WAS my little Lemonade tree last year before I harvested its first crop of lemonade fruit.

Here it is today, doing very well in its pot.

I've just removed most of this years crop

24 lemonades so far 
With a few left on the tree.

They are just beginning to colour up but I couldn't leave them on the poor little tree any longer as they were about to break the branches off with their weight. 
When I've taken all the fruit off I'll prune the branches right back as I did last year and give it a dose of fertiliser.

Now I have a new supply of lovely lemony juice for my Helsie's Downfall cocktail.

All that vitamin C must be good for you in this chilly Wintery weather !
