    Not sure I understand all the latin names but I do understand the smell of fresh fresh fruit. Your description of the lime was so evocative. I remember buying fresh papaya every day for my lunch from the road seller in Pune. Divine. It looks so interesting and beautiful where you are Barbara and I’m sure everyone so enjoys meeting you with your gentle manner and kindness. Wishing you happy times ahead. Much love, Elaine xx (ps we too have rain…lots and lots and lots of it…just perfect for a Sunday afternoon full of baking, cooking and ironing!)
