Friday Olive Tree Blogging

Our olives are getting depressingly ripe and, just as last year, the mill isn't open yet so they are beginning to drop to the ground. However, that may be next weeks photo because I have something more interesting (to us olive fanciers at any rate) this week.

Last week while on the Ile de Porquerolles (the reason why last weeks entry showed up a tad early) I saw some interesting olive trees which seem to be growing olives that are far larger than normal. This image is not of the largest ones as unfortunately I cocked up the macro on that one and it came out blurry but they are still interesting because of their far more spherical shape than the average olive.

As always click on the photo to enlarge and do look at the rest of the series if you missed them.
