In an arabian garden

What better time of year than the date season to pay a visit to an arabian garden?

First comes water, the giver of life:

without which the sun's magic  rays just burn...

without which the sun’s magic rays just burn…

And next comes Phoenix dactylifera – the date palm…

the main cash crop...

the main cash crop…

… from which a bounteous harvest

varieties to suit all tastes

varieties to suit all tastes

…and artistic palettes

a calorific crescendo

a calorific crescendo

But man cannot live by dates alone…

Figs...

Figs…

.

Pomegranates...

Pomegranates…

.

Bananas...

Bananas…

.

Mango...

Mango…

 

and to re-sharpen the taste buds…

Limes...

Limes…

… and something for a refreshing cup of tea!

Wild mint

Wild mint

Closer to heaven in a garden.
