Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #73

Last week’s 2-fer — photos of a boulder surrounded by overgrown brush, and a plaque saying the planting was made possible by the Westport Garden Club — was as tough as the tangled weeds in Bob Weingarten’s shot.

Only 2 “06880” readers — Diane Bosch and Elaine Marino — knew it was hidden in plain site: at the Merritt Parkway Exit 42 commuter parking lot.

The Westport Garden Club didn’t know. But they responded quickly, noting that although they help with plantings, they are not responsible for (non)-maintenance like this. (To see the photos and all guesses, click here.)

    Its on South Compo, at the Gault Barn! My daughter and I were walking by there yesterday. The lemon trees are amazing.

    Looking at the size of the lemons my guess is that they are Meyer Lemons. While I did not know where these are I am also guessing that they are taken in over the winter.

  4. You guys know your lemons! Correct — the Gault barn on South Compo.

    Dan,
    Talk to Bill Gault and get the story on these trees. You’ll love it.

    That is Bill Gault’s gorgeous Meyer lemon tree which he winters over in his historic barn,….what a guy !!!!

    Dan, can you get us the story behind these citrus trees that appear in the spring, and then disappear again in the fall? These grow remarkably well compared to most I’ve seen, including a couple friends have in their greenhouses.

    Perfect spot for an Al’s Angels lemonade stand!
