Day 193 – It’s Not Easy Being Green


When I saw that the prompt for The Gallery this week was food I was delighted as we had just got back from one of London’s best food markets; Borough Market and my camera was full of images of yummy food. However choosing just one to show off here today was rather tricky. In the end I managed to quash the urge to post glorious cream cakes and instead went for something a little more vibrant but equally delicious…. especially when served with a ice cold glass of white wine!

Green and black Olives at Borough Market

“Except the vine, there is no plant which bears a fruit of as great importance as the olive.” ~ Pliny (AD 23-79)

  3. We just love, love, love olives here – green, black, stuffed, made into tapanade – you name it we love it – I can just smell the plethora of herbs wafting through the air – think I will just pop to the fridge and have an olive before I continue with the evening!

  4. Oh I love that shot!

  5. I love Borough Market! Great shot of the olives :)
