These old trees

These olive trees have seen a lot.

This is the garden of Gethsemane, with domes of The Church of All Nations in the background.

Up the hill (that is, the Mount of Olives) is the Dominus Flevit, on the grounds of which are some other rather impressive old olive trees that have been recently interplanted with young citrus trees.
