Fig Tree growing out of a tomb in Watford Churchyard

A Fig Tree growing out of a tomb in Watford Churchyard - the legend runs that a lady buried in the vault from which the tree is growing was an atheist, and that on her death-bed she adhered to the tenet that expressed a wish that a fig tree might grow out of her heart if there were a God.... Local thought today is that the growth of the fig tree is more likely down to the vicars preference for eating figs as he walked to church, spitting the pips out as he went. It is also unlikely that an atheist would have occupied such an impressive tomb, so close to the church! Date: circa 1920s

Roscoff, Finistere, Brittany, France - Ancient Fig Tree

Brittany, France - Ancient Fig Tree in a convent garden at Roscoff, Finistere, dating back to 1610. The expanse of branches is supported by rowsof grante props. Its extremely numerous figs were sold in all the neighbouring markets. Tragically, the tree was cut down in 1987 during a modernisation spree - a horticultural tragedy in my book, especially as it was removed for the construction of a (non-defunct) car park. Date: circa 1910
