Am I going to be your first comment? THAT is exciting! I do love lemon too ... chocolate would always be my first choice, strawberry second (if we are going the fruit route) but lemon is a close third!!!! xoxo

Hello Sweet Friend,

Although I love lemon...I'm with pollydove, chocolate is my first choice too! Thinking about you and sending you a big hug!

Lemon/orange AND chocolate of the dark variety for me - all in equal amounts.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Your photos are just beautiful ~

Lemon was one of my grandmother's favorite flavors. She would even splash some extract on when she baked with it!
I think the scent of lemons and their amazing flavor will always bring me back to moments in her kitchen ♥
Wishing you a lovely Friday and a very restful weekend!
*love*
Maria

Hmm...I love lemon, but some days are vanilla and some days are chocolate! Today, was a chocolate day for me.

A Vintage Chic said...

I would choose the lemon. Secretly hoping that I could have some hot green tea in a pretty little cup.

This is my favorite blog. Every day I check in to see what is new. It has been a delight for my eyes, for a couple of months. It has has also given me back the love of the color blue. I even bought a binder notebook the color of Bluebird Notes Blue. Not sure what I will put in this sweet happy book. But it makes me happy. Thank you for your wonderful photos.

Ana Degenaar said...

Bright and fun! I love it!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

My mother is the same, always lemon (even wears yellow all the time). I'm a chocolate girl myself but I wouldn't turn down lemon, no I wouldn't!

Bohemian said...

Well all of your photos are so delightful that visually I'd have trouble choosing! *decisions decisions*... but yes, I'm a Citrus Gal for sure!

Privet and Holly said...

I think lemon
married with
vanilla is a
heavenly match!
But not sure
I would throw
over that old
friend, chocolate....
It's a toss-up : )
Happy FRIDAY, Koralee!

janet said...

Meegan said...

Lemons would be my first choice, by far. The bitter, sweet, tangy flavor of a beautiful yellow lemon-can't be beat. Lemonade, lemon bars, lemon cheesecake, lemon chicken, lemon drop cookies,our family favorite-lemon layered cake with lemon filling and choclate frosting, my list could go on and on...MMMMMM Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
Have a great weekend-LOVE your blog!

Bela said...

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

AH!!!! Yumm, yumm, yumm.....and here I am now today, with a day off! I had to do it; I had to get a sub. I am listening to the beautiful sound of saws, hammering and the FINAL TOUCHES of beauty. Thank you dear heart for coming to visit. I hope you have a splendid day, rain or shine! BISOUS KORALEE! Anita

Merci-Notes said...

I have found that I am a lemon girl ALSO!
I cannot leave my chocolate behind.
Lemon is so very refreshing even when sweet!

Martina said...

If life gives you lemons, make a gin & tonic ;) I'm such a fan of lemons as well, how would we survive without them? Happy friday!

Julie said...

Lemons remind me of summer and boy am I looking so forward to summer!

Ashley said...

You know chocolate is my fave, but lemon is certainly second....all summer, I use lemon in EVERYTHING, baking, cooking, drinks!!! I just bought the cielo coffe from Starbucks, it's lemon and cocoa ;) Soooo good! Happy weekend dear friend! Xoxoxo

Not Just a Waitress said...

My dear Koralee, you share a love for lemon with my Grammie. :) I would like to send you one of her favorites. Could you email me your address?? CrystalMCaron@yahoo.com
I would love to send you some lemon goodness. :) :) :) BLESSINGS :)

Gloria said...

Beautiful photos!! Perfect!!! :)

Chocolate is usually always my first choice. Although, when it comes to Gelato (Sorbet), I would prefer lemon over chocolate!

My dear hubby is a "lemon & lime" guy though...those are always his first choice! Our grandkids are following in his footsteps in the taste bud department...:)

Have a beautiful weekend!!!

XOXO
Gloria

Hi Koralee,

I used to be a lemon girl til my stomach decided otherwise...I'm visiting for Friday Pretties!

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

Victoria Sayer said...

Koralee! Such an oh so very pretty blog...I love dropping by to see your blogbeauty.
Your photos are just amazingly stunning.
I am not so much a lemon kind of girl...but I do LOVE fizzy grapefruit drink.
If you get a moment, do drop by for a peek at my very first 'giveaway'.

i.ikeda said...

Ahhhhh, it does look so refreshing up there. Maybe because lemons remind me of lemonade, which in turn reminds me of summer?

Not a lemon girl, BUT I adore the color! I'm all about bright colors right now, yellows, oranges, reds.

Bohemian said...

Thanks for joining us for our Tea Party, my Grand-Daughter envisions herself as somewhat of a celeb now that she's seen herself in my Blog Posts so she wants me to photograph everything we do! *Smiles* Have a wonderful weekend... Dawn... The Bohemian

Marilyn said...

For sure I am a lemon girl. Love them, must always have at least one in the house. Made 2 lemon meringue pies and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd in the past week. Meyer lemons are the very best. Your pictures fantastic as usual.

garden clippings said...

I make Lemon Bread during the holidays to give out to our neighbors, friends, co-workers. It's always a hit. As for me...I'll take lemon over chocolate any day of the week!

Irma allemaal kleurtjes said...

Auntie Bliss said...

It comes in three for me!!! Right after coconut...I don't think I have to say what one is :)

Susan said...

Before my Dad passed away he would come for a visit every Saturday morning. He'd bring me coffee and a lemon~filled donut. SOoooo delicious! They were messy to eat so I was happy to have them at home! I haven't had one since then. Soon after Dad died they were no longer on the menu. Funny coincidence, I think. I would call myself a lemon girl. But I prefer my lemonade pink!
Blessings!
