Harvest, Olive Tree and Montbretia with Cornflowers

1   We have harvested the last of our broad beans today – that feels both good and a bit sad. It means that Summer is almost over ……..  They were delicious and I have frozen some for later.

2   I pruned the Olive tree at the start of the summer (as advised) but was too hard on it and thought I’d killed it. Imagine my delight when I found these beautiful little shoots today! There are thirteen all together so it’s alive!
