Myrtle Tree

I've walked past this tree more times than I care to remember, photographed it but never been able to identify it until yesterday.

It has blue berries on it and had I bothered to touch it I would have smelled the lovely fragrance that the small leathery leaves give off.

There are a few more too, nestling on the hillside above this one.

Myrtus communis.
