Menton's Orange Trees

Yes, it's that time of year again.  The streets of Menton are lined with orange trees and that means the 'Fete du Citron' can't be far away.  In fact it starts on the 16th February - this year's theme, 'Around the World in 80 Days.'


Oui , voici revenu  ce moment de l'année. Les rues de Menton sont bordées d'orangers et cela signifie que la « Fête du Citron" n'est plus loin. En fait, elle commence le 16 Février - le  thème de cette année, « Le tour du monde en 80 jours. »

  2. Ah, orange trees in the streets. What a civilised part of the world this is.

  3. Jilly...this is what I call a 'happy shot'..it truly is. Most fruit trees in Saigon are at their peak right now..I have my eye on adding lime and pomelo trees to our garden. I am going to savour while I can. Many thanks for your lovely comment over at Carla's..very nice to meet you. :)

  4. Thanks everyone for the comments. Jeanne, I remember trying to grow lime and grapefruits when I lived in Cairns. Oranges and lemons worked, not the limes or the grapefruits. I never knew why. Great mangos tho! You will be able to grow wondrous things in your Saigon climate I'm sure.
