My new lemon tree

My free-plus-postage dwarf Meyer lemon tree arrived last week. I've got it potted up in the pot that it came with -- though I added some good, compost-rich soil to the potting mix that came with the kit -- and now the little critter is residing in a sheltered place under the deck awning. I keep it covered with a tube of bubble wrap while the night temperatures are still cool. So far it's chugging along.

Doesn't look much like a tree yet, but give it time, give it time...
