‘The Lemon Tree’ Obidos, Portugal

The lemons in Portugal are, it has to be said, abnormal for the most part.  In a restaurant in Obidos, an ancient walled village almost as packed with citrus as it is with tourists, I was allowed to pick one that was nearly as big as my head.  For some reason I grew very fond of the lemon; nature had excelled herself and I was allowed to adopt, for a short while, one of her progeny.

You may laugh.  My family did.  But it was a beautiful lemon, and this is my watercolour homage to its deliciousness.
