Looking out of my window

by Penny BroJacquie

I love this view when looking out of my window!

These are fig leaves. A fig tree (figus carica; syco in Greek language) is a deciduous tree; that means it loses all of  its leaves this very part of the year.

Do you know the word “sycophant” comes from the Greek word sykophantes, meaning” one who shows the fig”?
