After a spectacular performance last year, my potted lime did something a bit weird at the start of Spring. It started to look distinctly ill with yellowing leaves dropping off all over the place. You would think that it was a sign that the tree was lacking in nutrients but now its gone ahead sprouting healthy new leaves and flowering profusely. Its almost like it was getting rid of old leaves it didn't like in anticipation of the new growth. On the other hand sometimes they flower like mad when they're really unwell and close to death, citrus trees... sigh.

Dead leaves around the trunk and a significant weed I probably should have removed before taking the photo.
