Alphabet Wednesday

WOW - this last week flew by !! It's already Wednesday again!!! Stop by Mrs. Nesbitt's place for more 'O' sitings.
This week we celebrate the letter 'O'. That was a bit of a tough one for me, but I start with ...
THE OLIVE
This is an Olive branch I photographed just outside San Giminano, Italy (don't think I spelled that right, but I was there in 2006.

The pretty olive gets picked in Italy, shipped to the USA. Loaded up in bins in a grocery store...
Then, the best part is when it's dropped into a lovely chilled glass of
Bombay Sapphire GIN.

I never thought of olives! My kids always loved them when they were younger. I'm not much of a martini gal although I've made a lot of them in my day!! Great photos and good choice for O.

I've never taken to olives, but I have to admit they look delicious. I love the olive branch photo.

People of this world are divided into 2 - olive haters and olive lovers. I'm glad to say I'm an olive lover :)

Happy May Day too!

I hate olives too, and pickles.

I have never heard of a Dream Board but I want to do one now!

I love your illustration at the top and I admit it, I am going to steal it, but I won't use it soon. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
