Birthday Lemon Tree

We planted the new lemon tree out front this morning. The Femminello Santa Teresa from Italy is renowned for its high lemon oil content in the skin and ample juice. It is the main ingredient for limoncello.
We took out the huge Pride of Madeira in the front.  I transplanted that huge brute in our neighbor's backyard. 5 feet tall and 50 pounds!
The soil in our front yard is very much clay based.  So with pick axes and shovels, we dug deep and amended well the soil. Hopefully the new tree takes to its surroundings.
