The fig tree waits

.

 In contrast to the wild almond trees that are currently full of white blossoms, the old fig tree stands, branches exposed.


Not even one fig leaf to cover its winter nakedness.


It has been growing next to our underground spring for who knows how long.

The tree feels as if counting time on his own. The one in our garden looks the same. Please have a good Thursday.

Mine (much younger and smaller than this one) is getting ready to start putting on its new leaves soon.

Figs are my favourite fruits, followed by dates. How very biblical :)

The underground spring sounds beautiful. I would love to see your flowering almond trees. Ah.... maybe you've already posted it. I shall have a look.

Shouldn't be too much longer. The little one on my roof is starting to put out new leaves already. Roll on spring!

I love that first photo! Will it come to life again?

I like to see your pictures. Very interesting and so very different from our part of the world, in so many ways. As a Christian, they are doubly interesting. Thank you...=)

Today it is 'spring at sea' here, but it has been raining all the day!

The figtree is a real biblical tree, isn't it?

Next week I shall post an entry about the gum tree in Australia. I bet you have seen many of them.
