Ha! I bet you all thought I was going to say "these shoes", didn't you? I cannot resist buying thin-skinned lemons with the leaves still attached, such as these. The perfume is heavenly.
On another food-related matter, a pleasant waitress in one of the bars seems concerned for the state of my soul because I eat meat on a Friday. I'm sure Dorothy Parker's maxim can be applied to foodie sins as well:
"Whose love is given over-well
Shall look on Helen's face in hell,
Whilst they whose love is thin and wise
May view John Knox in paradise."
Buona Pasqua a tutti!

Lovely..can smell them from here!!!

Reminds me of our trip when we were walking through the gardens at the Caves in Syracuse.

Very Cheery.

I don't eat meat on a Friday either, my Greek mother drilled that into me because of the crucifixion.

I always have hot water and lemon first thing every morning, I swear by it.

Have a very happy Easter Welshcakes. If you have a memoment to check out Welsh Jenny who posted a comment on my last post, you may find a kindred spirit, she is also a teacher, but still in the valleys.

Best lemons in the world in Sicily. Must be the lovely volcanic soil.
You are a busy blogger today!

Ciao, anne. Yes, those gardens are fantastic. Thanks, Ellee. Happy Easter again and I will visit Welsh Jenny. Jmb, yes, must be the soil. And re me being busy, must be something about Fridays! Auguri a tutti.

Actually, Welsh, I thought you were going to tell us about your citrus liqueur! Have you tried it yet...gestation time must just about be up in time for Easter! ;)

They would make a nice lemonade. I'm not that religious, so I eat meat whenever the fancy hits me.

Buona Pasqua! All the best.~M

Mmm, smells good.

Have a wonderful Sicilian Easter, Welshcakes. Harvey says to say the same thing to Simi from us.

Ciao, Lee. April 18th is citrus liqueur drinking day! Hi, Steve. Yes, I should make some lemonade as well! M, Buona Pasqua a te. Thanks, Liz. And you have a wonderful Welsh one. Simi says: "Hi, Harvey. Have a great Easter and don't do anything I would!"

Wah! I never read that before!

Dorothy Parker is da bomb, as my nephew Wolfie would say.

Those lemons look wonderful. Every lemon tree I've planted in our back yard in the last 12 years has died. Our soil is too alkaline and contains too much clay. I miss the smell of lemon and orange blossoms.

Hi, Bonnie. Is "da bomb" good or bad? That's a pity about your lemon trees not growing. I always imagined you amongst loads of them!
