20090515 Friday Olive Tree Blogging

Since I've been on my travels this week I'm putting up an image I took a couple of months ago. This is a picture of the olive groves just below Châteauneuf. At one time much of the landscape around Grasse looked like this with olive trees all over the place and few houses. These days the villas are everywhere. The laws mean that the olive trees themselves generally remain but you don't get the same expanse of trees as in the old days.
