Greece is in an economic crisis and here we have local producers being sabotaged by a government allowing foreign (and non EU) produce such as this to be brought in and sold. I can only hope that no-one was buying. These lemons were a bright yellow and glistened, I presume with wax and some kind of preservative. I suppose if they don't sell here, they'll sell elsewhere, in Athens say, where lemon trees do not grow in everyone's back yard. What a bloody shame.
*flabbergasted. Of course, I googled this amazing word. It's origin is uncertain but first appears in print in 1772.
The British comedian Frankie Howerd used to say in mock astonishment: “I’m flabbergasted — never has my flabber been so gasted!”
