The Olive Tree has fruit

I was rather excited this morning as I walked up the back of our drive to speak to my neighbour...
I passed by the bigger of the 2 olive trees I planted here maybe 4 or 5 yrs ago now
&
I was THRILLED to see several olives on the tree...


I love the look of olive trees & am partial to a nice olive to eat ...
 I have planted these in all the moves I have made in 16 years ( except beach house ) but never stay around to see them grow ......(I have 2 in  pots now .......)


Often as I gaze across the road to the vacant land....which has a water race running right past the old house...
How that land could be a divine 
OLIVE & LAVENDER GROVE .....
Border it in at the sides etc with some big elm trees ...to shelter it a bit from that harsh summer.
It could be a working piece of land too
Olives & Dried Lavender..
I  could get to gaze across at that every day.....
instead of this barren dry lot..left to waste really !
The roos could still come in through a corridor ....& keep the grass down & maybe the sheep in the next paddock
