Olive Trees in the Garden of Gethsemane

December 2008 ..... I had the once in a life time chance to visit Israel. So the tour took us to the Garden of Gethsemane on Mt. Olives. In this plot of land stands the last eight Olive Trees aged over two thousand years old. No chance to walk through this garden though. Only allowed a moment of time to peer through the iron fence to have a glimpse of them. Imagine JC sitting under one of them during his last moments before his betrayal ..... a silent prayer was said.

Here's more about Olive Trees ....
