The Garden of the Hesperides is Hera's orchard in a far western corner of the world, located near the Atlas mountains in Tanger, Morocco where a grove of immortality-giving golden apples grew. The trees were planted from the fruited branches that Gaia gave to Hera as a wedding gift when Hera accepted Zeus as her husband. The Hesperides were given the task of tending to the grove, but occasionally plucked from it themselves. Not trusting them, Hera also placed in the garden a never-sleeping, hundred-headed dragon named Ladon as an additional safeguard for her precious apples. Sparkling golden apples with a slight pink hue, and a distinct bronzing from the late Autumn wind gently rustling brown and yellow autumn leaves. Oaken tree roots reaching into deep forest loam with branches curling inward to protect the golden apples, and the warming glow of perpetual dusk. Golden apple, Oak branches, Autumn leaf, vanilla bean, blackberry accord, forest loam, and a hint of woodsmoke.
