Antique Olive Trees of Apulia

Everybody knows it about Apuglia -it's the land of olive groves.

The plant likes sun and this particular very difficult soil that not so many plants can support. You know that we have olive trees too and pick up about 400 kg of olives (you will remember my post about the olive oil I wrote some years ago here How We Make Olive Oil). I want to see, olive tree is absolutely not new for me.

The modern landscape design uses the old olive trees as main points of the creation here in Sud Italy in the last years, too. So, I thought, there is nothing that can surprise me in this sense. But when I saw THESE trees, I was astonished. I can't even imagin how old have to be these trees. And how can the gatherers pick up the olive there...
