CNN — It's been said, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade." But how do you make a sour situation sweeter when someone steals your lemon tree?
A woman in Houston, Texas says that a hole in the ground is all that's left of her lemon tree that someone swiped from her front yard. The homeowner says that she left her house to attend her son's middle school graduation and upon return noticed something a big different.
Nothing was missing from inside her home, but her $50 lemon tree she planted in February was gone. She admits that it is a bit comical but she is hoping for payback.
"I hope you find yourself stricken with dysentery on a long drive in the middle of no where. If you needed my lemons so bad, I hope they serve you well." said Kae Bruney, owner of the lemon tree.
Bruney says that she does plan to buy a bigger lemon tree making it harder for thieves to walk away with it.
