It has been a good year for olives (Olea europaea) in Melbourne this year and our olive tree in the back yard is absolutely laden with a heavy crop of fruit. It's a sure sign of Winter when the olives are bigger and darker on the tree...

  1. yummy. how great to have an olive tree in your garden.

  2. I've seen olive trees but haven't gotten a clue how the fruit is transformed into the brined product or what the flowers look like. They interest me, though.
    Thanks for sharing at

  3. So that's how you know it's winter, because I know it doesn't get very cold there!! What a great image. I've never seen olives on the vine before.
