Under Majestic Cranberry Tree

Once again I am honored to step into the great Renard’s World with my humble contribution.

Renard's World

morse-3

An unknown French traveler, visiting Russia during summer (there are summers in Russia, Beautiful People!), rested in the shade of a luxuriously leafy crown of a huge tree. Apparently not familiar with Russian flora, he inquired about the name of the tree. “Klyukva – cranberry,”  – with a straight face replied the Russian guide, always ready to pull wool over a foreigner’s eyes.  Back in France, the seasoned globetrotter reported that he found respite sous l’ombre d’un kliukva majestueux – under the shade of majestic cranberry.

    1. Cranberries abound in Russia. Frozen cranberries are traditional Russian winter treats, and all kinds of cranberry drinks go back to pagan times.
      Have a wonderful weekend, Michael!
