goodbye olive trees


A flowering almond tree is a wonder of the world for me ..


And the last of my father's field of olive trees will disappear next week ....


My sister and I for the last time we wanted to to see and photograph the trees ...  
for many years and many times here we went to harvest
 olives all family ...!


The wildflowers, another preciousness ...


And the smell of damp earth ... stones and dust of the field ...


Times change and nothing will ever be the same ...


These trunks of trees that have seen it happen so many things, 
which have suffered heavy frosts, which have always sprouted again, 
trees that my father has pampered all his life ....


The traditional cultivation rainfed crops will be replaced by irrigation. 
Coming soon the digging machines we end up with all these precious landscapes 
of  Historical Garrigues ...


I am sad when I see the digging machines near to our camps...


But my grandfather he heard some day will the water will arrive... 
and it was not until the day my father, he had retired with 72 years ... 
Has come the water, yes. 
But much unpopulated land and farmers are no longer as before. 
Now large crops and a few farmers ... intensive cultivation ...


I always liked the month of February-March the green fields in the village ... 
the crops can change color much throughout the year ....


I had be spend hours looking at this green ...


And here peach blossoms ... much of the village is now being planted peach ...


This are a beautiful flowers, too. 
But I'll miss those  almond blossom and big green fields that stretched so far 
in across the village...


For our third wedding anniversary my husband gave me 
this beautiful bouquet of flowers ....


You could say that yesterday was a day full of flowers ... on the field and at home!


It is a spectacular bouquet .... Today the light is  bad for making photos ... 
Live the bouquet has beautiful colors!

Thanks for all your comments! 
I am impressed to see how increasing the number of visits to the blog .... 
thanks ... thanks ...

  2. És una pena que els cultius tradicionals vagin desapareixent, entenc que la situació actual, els agricultors tenen més traves que facilitats!
    Encara que tinc sóc al.lèrgica al pol.len, quan arriba la primavera ja tremolo! Però t'haig de dir que m'encanten veure els arbres fruiters florits!
    Quin ram més bonic!! Moltes felicitats pel vostre aniversari!

  5. olive trees are part of my childhood reality too! I feel safe around them though I do not enjoy olive picking much:) But we have to adapt to changes and hope for the best. Have a lovely day.Gaia.

  6. ES una llàstima que les feines tradicionals es perdin, però de totes maneres tu has vist coses que molts no ho em fet, senteix-te orgullosa d'això.

    Petonets
