When I was in Israel a few weeks ago, I was able to see how olive oil was made. While I didn’t have my big camera for the factory tour (I used Mr Chiot’s phone for those), I did get some photos of the olive trees.

I can see exactly why many gardeners like to use olive trees as decorative trees in the garden. Not only are they beautiful in shape, the color of the foliage is not common. I’ve often considered getting an olive to grow in a container, now that I’ve seen them perhaps I will. I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen an olive tree in person before, which is amazing since I’ve toured so many gardens.

Have you seen any new plants recently?
