Friday Olive Tree Blogging

An odd one this. Some branches have recently died off, while others right next door to them are flourishing with new shoots. You can see this in the close up photo where there are some lighter green leaves here and there. At first I thought this was merely an example of botched pruning where the pruner had left a few of the cut branches in the tree but that does not appear to be the case as the dead bits are clearly attached to the rest of the tree. Since I go past this young tree quite frequently on my way into the village to buy bread I'll see what happens over the next few months.

As ever you can click on the photos to see them enlarged and take a look at previous Friday olive tree blogging images if you missed them.
