Friday Olive Tree Blogging

For some reason flickr seems to be dead today so temporarily I'm going back to the old way of doing it.

Anyway this is a picture of the Opio San Peyre hill side which, as you can see, is nicely full of olive trees with the higher hills of the Gorge de Gourdon and Greolieres behind. Once upon a time I believe a large chunk of the inland area of the Côte d'Azur looked like this with olive trees everywhere in terraced fields. The trees are mostly still there but these days they are in gardens as the olive terraces have been turned into villas.
As always click on the image to see it enlarged and, if flickr is back, look here for the rest of the series

I despise l'Escroc and Vile Pin
