La Fête du Citron - the Gardens from Above

Last Tuesday was such a lovely day. Well not the weather, the sun hid her face as you can see. I met two photographer friends, dear Sylvie Matthiew, who lives and loves Menton and has her own blog. And Patrick Hanez from Nice. I only have to breathe the same air as Patrick and I learn something new about photography or how I should be using my camera.

We ate a delicious lunch at Officina del Gusto and later, a treat awaited us. Thanks to Cathy and Patricia we were invited to take photographs from the 2nd floor terrace of the Palais de l'Europe.

Here is a selection of photos showing the gardens, the sea and the mountains. More tomorrow ...


Mardi dernier fut une très belle journée. Pas vraiment à cause du temps, le soleil se cachait comme vous pouvez voir. J'ai rencontré deux amis photographes, ma chère Sylvie Matthieu qui habite à Menton , aime sa ville et a son propre blogEt Patrick Hanez de Nice. Il me suffit de respirer le même air que Patrick pour apprendre quelque chose de nouveau sur la photographie ou la façon dont je devrais utiliser mon appareil photo.

Nous avons pris un délicieux déjeuner à l' "Officina del Gusto" et plus tard, un plaisir nous attendait. Merci à Cathy et Patricia  qui nous ont  invités à prendre des photos depuis  la terrasse du 2e étage du Palais de l'Europe. 

Voici une sélection de photos montrant les jardins, la mer et les montagnes. A demain pour la suite...


  1. Thanks Jilly for the link to my Blog.
    That was a great day !

  2. It was indeed, dear Sylvie x

  3. I look forward to your photos of this festival every year; never disappointed. So colorful!

  4. Wow! Menton has done it again. They never seem to run out of creative ideas for oranges and lemons.

  5. This is mind boggling. I'm sorry that I don't get to see it in person. The light may have been better with the clouds. You would have had some hard orange shadows with sun.

    I have a mostly dog post on Monday, and maybe more after that.
