Jan Le Clair and her partner share their experience amongst gardens and temples in Sicily.

"I greet you from south eastern Sicily, where my partner and I are living for a sabbatical.  Home is actually southern Ontario Canada, two hours directly north of Syracuse, NY.  The snow is a foot deep at home.  We travelled to south eastern Sicily last week, up the coast to Agrigento, which is famous for its ancient Greek Temples that are strung across a beautiful valley.  In the midst of these temples is a former private garden, now part of the public gardens near the temple ruins.  Early spring has arrived in southern Sicily, it is delightful.  Enjoy!
