I'm back and full of the joys of Sicilian gardens. Huge thanks for Helvetia Handmade and PODcast for hosting for the past fortnight and doing such a super job - you know what? I've missed the weekly garden glimpses and am really looking forward to this week. That's of course if you are now not all on holiday now!Sicily was full of little garden treasures. Little pots brimming with succulents filled narrow winding alleyways through towns... Love is often seen declared on catci... Plants spring up everywhere... I'm even sneaking in a fake flower photo... Growing high up with the sea for a view... Growing in public parks... Bountiful lime trees... And in the garden of the villa we stayed in, grapes grow. The owners greeted us on our first day with a bottle of homemade wine made from those grapes, eggs laid from their chickens and tomatoes, green papper and aubergines that grow in their veggie garden - we had the most delicious roasted vegetables with garlic and chilli that night!
Such wonderful and happy family memories, these are the first of our holiday photos that I've looked at and posted and so many more await. It was such a change from home and though I'm glad to be home and getting 'back to normal I'll not forget our time in Sicily for a long time to come!
I wonder just how everyone else's gardens have been growing?
