In a Cyprus Garden


You don't get gardens like this in England. The table and chairs are under an overhead trellis of grapes to provide cool shade. In the foreground, ripe pomnegranates, 'undreds of 'em. In the background a lemon tree. We sent a day lasst week harvesting some of this stuff. Figs, oranges, lemons, pomegranates and in a corner some of the largest aubergines I've ever seen.
This is the garden of a fellow artist who is permanently in Cyprus. I'm rentinf a room off him. The room is so big you could put the ground floor of my house in Lancaster in it.
