Friday Olive Tree Blogging

Actually I'm not 100% certain that this is an (ex)olive tree. I think it is but there was no clear way to verify so possibly I'm presenting this under false pretences. Anyway the tree stump is part of a memorial bang in front of the Dali museum in Figueras and I'm pretty sure it is a Dali thing itself, which explains its complete and utter weirdness.

Figueras is about 100km from Barcelona heading towards France and the Dali museum is without a doubt one of the weirdest and most wonderful places I've visited. I'd say it was a surreal experience but that would be kind of what you'd expect a visitor to say....

As always click on the image to see it enlarged and go here to see more olive trees and here for more photos of Figueras and other places in Spain and Portugal.
