That's right. He had a BIRTHDAY this week. And received a few gifts.
Last year I got him a heated ski boot bag, which was pretty hard to beat, especially since there's room for my gloves in it.
This year I got him a Kalamata olive tree. It's fairly small, and it will be a while before we are harvesting and curing olives, but in the meantime, it's beautiful silvery little tree.
We're not sure where it's going (it has to compete with two figs, a persimmon, a lime, and a Meyer lemon). For now it will live in a wine barrel planter.
He also received three ranunculi (that's the plural of ranunculus, right?). Pretty, no?
Sophie horrified him and totally cracked me up by giving him a card with ten dollars in it. Serves him right for going on about how he loves cards with money. She felt very grown up.
But I think Mother Nature bested the both of us.
First buds on our brown turkey fig tree. I guess spring's not all bad.
