Olive Family Tree


Many of the olive trees around Fontcaudette grow in a circular trio.  They are slender young trees growing from the rootstock of their ancient parent. Sometimes the decaying stump is left in the centre and sometimes it has been removed,leaving bare earth in the middle of the cluster.

I’m sorry not to have seen the dark,twisted trunks of the mature trees.
