“Sublime: shady spot under a citrus tree”

"Sublime” doesn’t describe a lime, but there are jokes. “What it was, under the citrus tree—‘SUB-LIME’” was the “Jumble puzzle syndicated in many newspapers on April 14, 1977. From “Wiley’s Dictionary” in a syndicated “B.C.” comic strip on May 21, 2010: “SUBLIME...SHADY SPOT UNDER A CITRUS TREE.”

“I’ve been standing under citrus trees all day. I feel sublime!” was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on July 7, 2019.

I feel sublime.
