20090410 (Good) Friday Olive Tree Blogging

On the way back from Rome last month we stopped near Firenze. To my amazement I saw that the olive trees there were still burdened with ripe olives waiting to be picked (or in the case of the one in the photo to fall off). On the Riviera the olives, even without the accursed olive fly, fall off by the end of January if they aren't picked. I'd guess these olives weren't even ripe in January.
