These are lemons from my garden earlier this year. They're not perfect, they're uneven shapes but they smell and taste wonderful. Sicily is famous for its lemon cultivation, although in recent years it seems to be in decline. The price of lemons on the market is so low that it is not worth while growing them.
When we first bought our house the fields around us were golden yellow in the spring with fruit.Wild fires and construction have sadly changed that forever.
This is my original sketch in watercolour, I decided to lose the reflection from the glass dish as it looked odd and untidy.
