Time for a update. Been here for 5 years now so the garden is no longer brand new. It’s still windy, it’s still stony and I still have so many plans.

Olea europaea

Cloud pruning year 2. Not sure how the plant feels but I find the cutting a bit distressing, However it is thickening up well and is looking so much better than it’s old straggly self.

It was looking so sad last year @sadieberg it was time for desperate measures.

Hi @Diane76 hope it’s subsiding somewhat by now. It continued to be fairly windy until about 12 and now we have a glorious day🌤
