Birthday Tree 2015

Gosh, it's been a busy year. I'm run ragged.

It's almost two months late, but I finally got a birthday tree. I wish I'd gotten to it before last weekend's rain (maybe the last for a while?)


It's an olive tree. It should be good in this drought, but I've just learned that it could take up to five years for the first fruit. Which is going to be rough, since I've never lived in a house more than 5 years, and I'm already a year and two months into this house.

Last year's tree is doing well, I think.

Here's what it looked like when I planted it a year ago.


And here it is now:


This place is much better than Nevada City in this respect: my birthday trees aren't getting eaten by deer.
