The theme for this Challenge is "Lemon" - the color or the fruit. There is a saying that, "When life gives you lemons - make lemonade." Think either the fruit or the color, lemon-yellow. What've you got? My sample for this "Challenge" is, of course, lemons (with pineapple, a great mix for a summertime drink).
In helping Abbie to keep these Challenges going, I will be adding a few more from time to time. Her guidelines are as follows:

Don't forget Google is your blind viewer.... (S)He needs a description.
When life gives you lemons, throw them. It's not worth anything more unless you like lemonade... For real lemon enthusiasts, you can make your own Limoncello, which is an adult lemonade.
For those that don't know what a lemon is, I shall describe them. They are usually yellow, pointed at the ends like a football. They look a lot like oranges, they have a similar skin, and the inside looks the same as well. But unlike oranges, they are quite tart. Their friend, the lime, is also tart, and looks like a lemon, but its usually green. Lemons can be refreshing, and most old ladies never leave home with at least a few lemon candies.

The Trudy S is one of the many working boats that makes up the fishing fleet that supplies Morro Bay and much of the California coast with the wonderful abundance of fresh fish from the many great restaurants.
You can buy fresh fish right as it comes off the boat at several locations along the embarcadero in Morro Bay, one of California's prime tourist destinations, year around.
Some lemons... the fruit in unexpected colors. This is a fantasy digital art piece depicting my idea of how fruit might grow and look like on Mars. The fruits are highly textured and sit in their own shadows on a light green background. The fruits look like big jewels because of their bright jewel-tone colors. Mars Fruit
A cluster of four bright lemon yellow tulips bob their pretty heads in the breezes of a gentle spring evening. The garden paths at historic Beallair in Charles Town WV are an ever-changing floral delight in spring and summer and tulip season is always a joy. Lois Bryan
The daylily's botanical name, Hemerocallis, means beauty for a day.
Originally from the orient, daylilies have been cultivated for over 4000 years.
The lily-like flowers may only last a day, but they’re produced in bountiful succession over the summer months.

Looking For Love ... A tiny male American goldfinch, perched on the delicate pink blossoms of a redbud tree, gazes over his shoulder. Though to you and me it just looks like a tree branch, in the birdie world, the redbud tree is actually something of a single's bar. Just to the side is a feeder filled with thistle seeds, the favorite treat of finches, and just the spot to find lady American goldfinches lounging around. All dressed up in his brilliant lemony-yellow breeding colors, our little guy is enjoying the lovely spring day ... and the views of the other visitors at the seed "bar." In addition to the seeds, I think he just might be looking for love, too! Lois Bryan
