A Few Days of Summer

Mission Olive Tree Live Plant Cold Hardy 2-3 Feet Tall

Three days of summer put me in the mood to do a tiny bit of gardening. So I repotted the Olive Tree given to me by my daughter for Mother's Day. It needed it because it was still in the original tiny pot. It's also called the Peace Tree and when I look at it now I feel peaceful.

This is where we sit every day and eat our sandwich lunch. Perhaps later in the day we may have a glass of wine as the sun sets. A simple garden. I prefer this as before I had it landscaped into four levels it was on a hill and lawned. I could never sit in it then without getting fidgety seeing all there was to do. Now I am able to sit and chill. Now and again I rake the gravel.

I lost my olive tree in the cold weather last year. Hope you're enjoying the bank holiday weekend, Bugs.

I shall wrap it up with a warm covering in the winter Maddie.

Haven't done anything special but had a good Sunday roast lunch in The George yesterday as Clive is leaving for the summer months to do catering in his Festivals and won't be back until September. He really gets some intense flavours in his cooking. Then we went to see Hamish playing at The Hope and Anchor late afternoon.

Hope yours was good too.

Sounds very peaceful and enjoyable Buggles, the sandwich and glass of wine every day. Enjoy the sun while it lasts!
