internet comes... and goes... and comes again...

and so does the weight on the branches. Snap went the next branch on the old mandarine tree...
the good news is that I can still put my candles in the fork of the branches. At least for now... not that I am dining outside in my back yard until the weather warms up!

The trees in the area have taken a beating with the snow. The freedom to get about by car also brings with it the sad sights of broken branches and sad plants.

Today I am grateful for visitors from Scotland.

So sad to see the trees damaged, we are hoping our olive trees will not suffer from this prolonged cold with still no end in sight!

The beautiful tree that gave shade to your courtyard. I am sad. A.

My olives were only partly pruned, so it will be interesting to see what comparative damage there is when I find the courage to go down to the bottom terrace and check the last of them. I have one young tree down there I don't want to lose, but for the rest I guess I will just be grateful for the firewood as it burns with such heat.

It is always sad to lose trees though. With our extreme weather lately I am reconsidering my future planting plans. Citrus under a pergola, perhaps?
