Friday Olive Tree Blogging

It's that time of the year when the Riviera's mimosas are in full bloom with the hills behind Mandelieu in particular turning yellow. This one is taken just up the hill from out house and gives you not just a mimosa but, free and gratis too, an olive tree. The tree was pruned last year - I don't think I have a picture of it in its formerly shaven state but, like the ones in our garden has bounced back to become extremely bushy this year.
