Menton is famous for the Fête du Citron which takes place in February and many of Menton's streets are lined with orange trees.
Now the oranges are rotting on the trees, a few have fallen, but it always surprises me how long they hold on. These trees, which will be trimmed soon, line each side of the Jardins Biovès - alongside the plane tree we saw the other day.
I presume they are not harvested for consumption because they are such a bitter variety - also they'd be polluted by the cars that drive past them. And of course, they are such a beautiful symbol for Menton that the authorities probably like them to be visible for as long as possible.
Tomorrow, get your running shoes on, we've a 10 kilometres run along the beaches.
