One of the most beautiful things you may not have seen are olive flowers. While taking these pictures of our farm's blossoming olive trees, I rembered an old children's song by Sergio Endrigo. It really says it all. Here's a quick translation:
To make a table it takes some wood; to make the wood it takes a tree; to make the tree it takes a seed; to make the seed it takes a fruit; to make the fruit it takes a flower. To make everything it takes a flower.
