Supermarket carpark

carpark in the rain

 

So, on the rainy day we went to the supermarket. The carpark is huge, and it’s lined by melia azedarach trees, commonly known as  chinaberry tree, bead-tree or Cape lilac – or, Lilas de Perse in French, which translates directly to Lilac of Persia. In winter, the tree is decorated with bone colour berries (toxic for human, but not for birds), and in summer with tiny little lilac flowers. As it was raining, the atmosphere is a little gloomy.
