Artist at heart . Love to paint pictures and my gardens ( one in SW England the other in SW France) provide the canvas !

@Davidward no David . It sits on my front patio in a sheltered corner . It has taken ten years to get to this but last year we had lots of olives ( first ever ) . Tiny but lots of them so it obviously likes where it is . It us planted in an old whisky barrel. Obviously likes the fumes 😂

Sooo excited ! We have had my olive tree nearly 9 years and this is the first year that I have olives on it . I repotted it last year and it obviously needed it 'cos it's come on in leaps and bounds this year . Hope it continues to have more each year . Problem is there may not be enough sun left to ripen them off !
