Lemon Tree Very Pretty

Where I live, citrus won't grow outside.  Too cold.  Yet, I'd love a lemon tree.

So I am growing one.  It's possible to start with seeds -- one JUST came up! -- and miniaturize the tree.  This isn't quite bonsai, which has very specific rules, but involves many of the same techniques, including pot sizes, root pruning, branch pruning and shaping, so that, some day, I'll have something like THIS:

A nice house plant that'll give me wonderful flowers and as many lemons as I could want.
