FOUND IN THE GARDEN #4: AN OLIVE BRANCH


I have a wild olive tree outside my study window which has literally thousands, if not millions, of tiny olives ripening in the summer sunshine.  The birds are waiting for the fruit to change from green to dark purple - from the current bitterness to an irresistible  sweetness.  Yesterday I decided that the olive tree would feature in my blogpost for today and then last night happened ...

The unimaginable invasion of the United States Capitol by hundreds of deranged, disillusioned Trump supporters determined to disrupt the nomination of Joe Biden as the new President of the USA.  This persuaded me to alter the subject of my blogpost from BIRD FOOD to the symbolism of the OLIVE BRANCH - a symbol of peace and victory ... victory of TRUTH over the LIES and conspiracy theories of a delusional President!

OJ - counting the days to President-elect Biden's inauguration
        and hoping that the security arrangements for that event will be better

  1. Thank you for your thoughts - most of us in the U.S. are appalled that it has come to this. America can have wrong things happen, too. Hopefully on the 20th things will go in a better direction. It has been a test of democracy.

    1. Good administration requires good people - Biden & Harris are good people.
