Ooooh, lovely! Reminds me of where my parents live, in southern Spain, the light is so different, makes the photos look so much better :-)Wish I could grow some of those beauties in my garden, but most of them don't like our winters!
how delightful makes me homesick for itialia
)h, wow! In my mind I would never have associated cactus with Sicily, or any part of Italy! Your photos are lovely. I have friends who visited parts of Italy, and they rave about it to this day. The gardens are gorgeous!
How wonderful to visit Sicily. The scenery is beautiful and the flowering cactus is amazing.
Astrid, beautiful photos! I've been to Mallorca the same time, not far from you! This cactus named opuntia grows there as well. The yellow-orange fruit are edible, they make jam from these fruit.I'd like to visit Sicilia too, seemed you had great vacation there!
Hello HeleneSicily really is in the tropics. We had sunshine and warm temps the whole time.AstridHi SharonWhere did you live in Italy?AstridHi DebHave you ever been to Italy? We never had and this trip just solidified the fact that we must return again soon. It was so beautiful!AstridHi PattyThere were so many lovely parts of the country but some of the private gardens made you feel as if you had stepped into a magazine…..AstridHi NadezdaHow interesting that we were so close! Yes, they told us the fruits were edible but also that you had to know exactly how to work with them because the thorns were very painful if they got in your hands.Astrid
I am sooo jealous! Lucky you to go to Sicily! Your photos are all just wonderful! I bet you had a terrific time.
Hi JenniferYes - the trip to Sicily was one of our best vacations ever. The history, the food, the warm sea, the food, the gorgeous scenery…did I mention the food? :)Everyone is very lucky i didn't post all 483 pictures!!Astrid
