I absolutely love seeing my mom in her kitchen, working on a project with the antique cooking tools she’s collected over the years.
The other day my dad brought in a couple dozen lemons from the Meyer lemon tree in the backyard. My mom’s been making lemonade ever since the tree has been producing lemons — she will never let a single lemon go to waste. If it’s not in the lemonade, it’s squeezed on fish, whipped into a dessert, or added to tea.
The common thread between the Jacaranda flowers and the lemonade are that both will forever make me think of my mom and dad and their gorgeous gardens. And don’t the lilac-colored flowers and the golden lemons just look so pretty together!?
My mom’s recipe is quick, easy, delicious and the perfect summertime drink!
Recipe is below.
