The wild olive raises its branches towards the intense blue of an Andalucían sky.
Already there is the hint of the white blush of its spring flowers, a subtle tonal change in the landscape.
One almost senses that this tree is stretching towards that primavernal season.
The heartbeat of this place quickens as the suns ascends the great Skydome of the Dehesa.
Spring is coming on the edge of the warm Poniente winds. Photo: Wild olive in Saladaviciosa. Courtesy of the author.
