You mean you do not get a few weeks of holidays each year?

Yes, I do. 4 weeks per worked year... The things is I can rarely enjoy them all together. Usually, two weeks at once is the most I can get at the same time...

Hm.. Feel bad telling you about my 7 weeks I have in a year (Partially because I work more hours each weeks then in my contract,, and save 2 hours per week fr holidays, on top of the normal amount). But I had 3 weeks now; 4 weeks is normal in summer for people in University employ here. But with my specific job I do not get to take those, so I am always very llate; Oct/November.

Ah.. Retirement. The blessing of time!

Hey guys!...

After a couple of years lost from this forum (sorry for that) I´ve finally found my way back to it :) . In any case, please, see an evolution of this tree a couple of years after. First picture corresponds to last year exactly on November 25th. Second image is from this year November 25th as well.

Even after all the inconveniences we previously discussed, I believe it´s been evolving fairly well, don´t you think? Next step will be repotting in a better looking pot next spring ;) .

As usual, all of your comments and insights are very much welcome.

Alain

Ha, yes indeed is beautiful...

But did you notice how the foliage has gone closer to the trunk and some back-budding has been achieved as well? That together with the diminishment of the previously way too long internodes? :whistle:
