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 Β 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”?
