Long, pointed leaves that scratch the air all around, scenting it with their pungent, sharp aroma. A green spot moving in the breeze, gently yet statuarily bending and growing in height or length depending on the climatic conditions in which it lives. Strong, stoic, heroic, tough, resilient. In a nut-shell: a free plant. That is the Juniper, which has always been known for its almost legendary prop-erties and used in history as a "spiritual shield" to protect what man loved the most.
