The term “to extend an olive branch” means an offer of peace or reconciliation. The symbolism is also related to the biblical story of the dove which mates for life on the 14th day of February Valentines Day. Having posted four Flowers of Love, I noticed there is an extra week in June.
I went out to take a picture of a flower on the lone Olive Tree here, but all of the Olive Branches have expired. Today is the 14th day of the month.
