An Old Olive, La Romita
Before leaving La Romita, I sat in front of this ancient olive tree and tried to capture the twists and turns, bits of sunlight and that incredible blue-grey foliage of olives.
The trees were in flower ... a delicate, soft white/grey that one could hardly see .. but promised that ever popular fruit that has made Italy, and this region, famous.
I took many photos of the olives and will paint several more .. I just love them!
We're off to another Garden with a group of Arboretum guests today ...fingers crossed for fair weather!
