Lemon Myrtle

This plant is in a pot on the balcony. It looks absolutely stunning at the moment. Full of flowers. The bees are busy buzzing.

The leaves are very fragrant and have a strong lemon scent and taste. I use them regularly in all kinds of cooking. It's especially handy when the lemon tree is having a little break. (Or if it's a tad cold and wet out there in the middle of winter and the lemon tree seems sooo far away.)
