Lemons and Oranges and Limes, Oh My!

Photos from the Lemon Festival in Menton, on the coast of the French-Italian border. All are made from lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits!

Michele sent me here.

Carolyn said...

Now that is a superb work of art! Looks good enough to eat too ;D

What folks can do with a great imagination, huh? Here from Michele's this morning.

What a wonderland, these fruity pics.

Carmi said...

OK, this has to be the coolest festival I've ever seen. I can only imagine what it must smell like to be there. Talk about fresh and citrus-y!

Now I really want to go!

Mr. Althouse said...

Amazing! How do they keep all that fruit together? That's crazy. All we have around here are the boring Garlic Festival, the Artichoke Festival, the Asparagus Festival and the ever-popular Mushroom Mardi Gras! There should be a Festival Festival where all the festivals can sell celebrate themselves!

Michele sent me.

Then there is Limoncello and Meloncello...we brought two bottles home from Sorrento....the bottles are empty but what a lovely time I had emptying them.

Judy, I had to laugh when you said that Pepsi tasted like perfume.... I've never tasted perfume, have you? That really sounds yuck.... now PeptoBismo reminds me of Teaberry gum. I used to like it then connected the two and can't chew it any more.

And this festival... Oh, how wonderfully citrus smelling it must be... lemon pie anyone?

Mamacita said...

Mmmmm, I can smell the citrus from here. Lovely. Lemons are my favorite fruit, yes, really. I eat them as is, and those who must have sugar on them are sissies. My kids eat raw lemons, too. Good ones are hard to find in Indiana, but once in a while, once in a blue, blue moon, ahhh, I happen onto a bag of big lucious lemons and it's like paradise in my kitchen.
