Yes I did see pomegranates too, with chestnuts, fresh walnuts and sundried tomatoes!
And yes it's also true I am a complete fool for printed things and blank books/journals. I always think I shall write in the journals and then somehow find it too daunting. Bought a delightful journal book from Scriba- blank pages interspered with 14 wonderful reproductions of the work of Rosario Morra whom Scriba represents in Venezia. Morra's etchings are marvellous- how will I ever write on the blank pages???Wish I had discovered this little gallery on day one- I would have happily gone without lunches etc for one of his small etchings!
And last but not least- one of those delightful scenes you encounter in walking around Venezia!
