Can you identify the tree in the photograph? Do my local plant followers need a hint? Unfortunately this tree is not native to New England. It thrives in Mediterranean climates and its fruit is a staple in any cook’s kitchen. So why should we know or be bothered with what exists in another’s plant palette? For starters, it’s healthy to imagine settling into this bucolic scene because it sure beats the one in New England today. You can feel the warm sunshine, the breeze and the soft fragrance of spring flowers.

As Albert Einstein wisely reminds us, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Don’t clutter your mind with the drizzle outside. Spring is only a flip of the calendar and literally just days away. Imagine - this winter is almost over!
For those who are looking for the answer at the end of the book, if you guessed Olive tree, you are spot on! To get through today, think about how you can integrate the fruits of this tree into your meal this evening. The possibilities are endless!
