This lime-tree bower my balcony

Fosco is proud to announce a new addition to his sub-tropical balcony: an honest-to-goodness lime tree! The idea, of course, is to fill the balcony with as many plants as possible that would not be able to grow back in Michigan. At some point, Fosco should be able to garnish his Gin & Tonics with a lime picked off his very own tree.

And, of course, sitting under it will produce Romantic, Coleridgian, thoughts:

Nor in this bower,
This little lime-tree bower, have I not mark'd
Much that has sooth'd me. Pale beneath the blaze
Hung the transparent foliage ; and I watch'd
Some broad and sunny leaf, and lov'd to see
The shadow of the leaf and stem above
Dappling its sunshine!
