More rain. It works the last nerve of even the most hardy New Englander. Dreaming of life on the west coast and sunny south- beaches and palm trees, I have come across a nice way to bring a little tropical joy to those of us who live in less temperate areas of the country. I love the idea of having one of these amazing miniature kumquat trees either on my little deck or inside the house in a sunny spot, perhaps even on the dining table as a centerpiece. You can order them from Acorn Springs
in many varieties including Meyer Lemon and Miniature Grapfruit. Plant them in either something whimsical such as this pot from Anthropologie
or something more clean and modern like these from Smith and Hawken.
