It's the beginning of the summer, and hopefully there will be more time to sketch and paint. To start with are some tiny little pears. Every year I can't resist sketching them, they are all different shapes and none bigger than my thumb.
A 'manderino' was hiding in my sketchbook too (that's one from a couple of months ago).
Out walking in the woods I was struck by how many pink flowers there were, these are just a few.
I've had my mum here to stay for 10 days so some days out... it's nice to be a tourist sometimes!
This is Cefalù, we had a wander around and some lunch overlooking the sea.
We also ate here on a trip to Erice. It was an old house with much of it's original decorations, we sat upstairs in what could have been a bedroom. I had the fish cous cous! This place is an off-shoot of Maria Grammatico's well known cake shop next-door, so we couldn't leave without tasting some almond pastries.
I wrote about Erice in one of my previous posts here if you want to know more.
