The Sun Tree

Since I moved to North Cyprus I’ve been fascinated by olive trees.  Their grey, gnarled twisted trunks look ancient and sturdy, and I love their grey-green foliage. To me they’re the bearers of life: wood for fires; olive oil for cooking; olives for eating.  So I decided that the olive was the tree of the sun because it thrives in hot, dry conditions and provides warmth, light and nourishment for us human beings.Olive Life

  1. Beautiful! I love olive trees too, especially the really old ones, they seem to have such great character! I just wish they thrived in the UK! 🙂 xx
