If you happen to be on holiday on this beautiful island or live amongst us, do visit the village of Qrendi where the feast of Santa Maria is celebrated today.
Photography: Ian Noel Pace during a visit last year before the feast of Santa Marija.
The village cultivates potatoes as well as carob and figs, grapes, prickly pears and capers.
Each day here I live a dream, the hot sun shines, the people are wonderful, the colours are vibrant….is this real ?
I love making the syrup and there is so much you can do with the fruit.
The pods are gathered and taken away.
Sido arrives to cut prickly pears. Cutting is recommended first thing in the morning when the spikes are gentler.
And bare hands too ….
Sidio starts to peel the fruit
