Reply Single Mother Ahoy on March 8, 2015 at 5:40 pm Wow, I’ve just spent an embarrassing amount of time staring at this photo. Amazing shot. thanks for linking up with the #WeekendBlogHop! Reply OneDad3Girls on March 8, 2015 at 8:30 pm What an amazing display, so artistic Thank you for linking up Reply thisdayilove on March 8, 2015 at 9:25 pm Wow, that is very colourful and creative Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:46 am Surprisingly this isn’t actually a celebration of CNY, just a coincidence. It’s a lemon festival and this year the theme is China. It just so happens it’s around the same time as CNY. Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:46 am It takes weeks of preparation Fiona. Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:46 am Yes, oranges and lemons and a “lemon” festival Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:47 am Yes Brooke, it’s the fête du citron, or lemon festival in Menton, Côtte d’Azur, France Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:47 am Spot on again Catherine :p Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:48 am IWD in France too, always good to celebrate with a lemon! Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:48 am Thaks for hosting! I’m glad you enjoyed/were intrigued by my photo! Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:49 am It’s a whole 2.5 week festival of floats and displays made out of citrus fruits. It’s pretty impressive. Reply Phoebe on March 9, 2015 at 10:50 am yes it certainly is! Reply Brighton Mama @ Our Seaside Baby on March 9, 2015 at 11:24 am Amazing photograph, what a brilliant display! 🙂 #mysundayphoto Reply Merlinda on March 10, 2015 at 8:44 pm I can already smell this festival from where I am sitting! So colorful! #mysundayphoto Reply Sara (@mumturnedmom) on March 12, 2015 at 1:28 am Wow, what an incredible amount of work! Reply maryanne @ mama smiles on March 12, 2015 at 11:16 pm This is incredible! Reply Rosie @Eco-Gites of Lenault on March 13, 2015 at 7:07 am I bet the lemon festival smells wonderful. Tom wanted to ask what happens to all the fruits afterwards? Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
