lemon verbenaCalibrachoa hybrid, Double Lemon

Lemon verbena, double lemon calibrachoa, "Pink Lemonade" petunias, "Lemon Symphony" osteospermum..., there are more lemony plants, and I'm going to collect them all for a while I think. Most of this year's containers seem to be coming up lemon.

Some people come into the greenhouse so organized: with lists & tags, and knowing exactly what they want. I can't say I don't have lists (in my head mostly) or tags (in bags on my desk), or any plan....
The possibilities are endless though, and until I run out of pots and space the deciding and planning continues. I know that I develop spontaneous relationships with blooms I never expected to even like (especially petunias, and zonal geraniums); and though I like to think I'm not a theme type of gardener, I do it all the time - fairytales and literary influences, fruit flavoured Daylilies, colours, and now lemons.
