The Tuesday tree: Mediterranea
As today’s cold rain showers try to decide whether they would prefer to be hail or sleet or even, perhaps, snow, I am looking through my photos from a week ago and trying to remember what it felt like to be having lunch al fresco in a sunny piazza. I think, therefore, we need some more warm Mediterranean photos. The only question is, should today’s featured tree be mimosa in blossom,
a palm tree in a palace courtyard,
some quintessentially Mediterranean twisted pines and dark cypresses,
orange trees, blasted by winter winds at a harbour but still laden with glowing fruit,
or the tree that has given food, wood, oil and shade to the people of the Mediterranean since time immemorial, the olive?
I know, let’s choose them all. Ah, I feel warmer already.
