Maurice and I just returned from a really delightful time in Menton to see the Citron Festival that they have during this carnaval time. Menton is the last major stop in France before you enter Italy if you are on the Cote d’Azure.
Â These tables make me want to eat here in the center of Menton
Along with the parade there is a garden with all sorts of objects made out of lemons and oranges. This was the gateway to the garden.
They had a real elephant around too giving rides. He was like a big old dog sticking his trunk all over the place, probably looking for food.
Â A butterfuly of lemon and oranges
Â Just another colorful corner
An interesting god. India was represented in this festival this year.
A Taj Mahal of lemons and oranges!
Â I have many more photos so there will be at least three more postings. Wait until you see the parade!
PS-I have been changing the photos, etc, over in Cafe Press, trying to have more photos for sale and trying to figure out just how to do that. I am not a computer genius, by any means.
