Bay leaves (Δάφνη)

Today's post is more to show off than anything else. In amongst our orange trees, we have a laurel tree growing, which we've been trying to cut down and get rid of for a while now, but every year, it springs up a branch or two. It grows in the summer, we snap it off the trunk in the autumn, bring it home and keep it in the basement ('a cool dark place') during the winter, and get a year's supply of bay leaves from spring onwards. Our very own bay leaves, combined with our black olives, lemons and olive oil in the background, create a sense of well-being and prosperity.
