Recently, I had the opportunity to go to Silicon Valley. While there, we visited Apple Park, the new headquarters for Apple, Inc. Naturally, I took pictures of their drought-tolerant landscaping on the way to Steve Jobs Theatre. They've got lots of grasses, shrubs, even a few redwood trees (not in the pictures) surrounding the office headquarters - a private campus. My husband fondly refers to it as the spaceship.
They also have an olive grove (Olea europaea) surrounding the Apple Store and Visitor Center. I'm guessing fruitless ones; otherwise, they would have to deal with fallen fruit and stains from fallen olives all the time; or get into the olive oil business, then they may have to change their name to Olive, Inc.
It was a beautiful sunny day and I had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. But there was one question I forgot to ask: Where are the apples?
