I have no idea what kind of olive it is, but that's some pretty cool nebari! It looks like it'll be a showcase bonsai too someday!

"For there is hope for a tree,
if it be cut down, that it will sprout again,
and that its shoots will not cease.
Though its root grow old in the earth,
and its stump die in the soil,
yet at the scent...

Hi Dean,

Gosh...I'm so sorry to hear about your back problems. All the best during your surgery and for a speedy recovery.

Your Olive tree is *awesome*!!! Wow. All the new growth coming out is a very good sign. I'm really looking forward to following it's progression. I hope someday to have an olive tree!

Take good care of yourself, ok? ;)

Don't have negative thoughts about things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the positive, present moment.

Hi bbf & Oscar,

My sincere apologies! It seems my previous post (addressed to Dean aka:Dragon)somehow got posted on your thread bbf. I'm not sure how it happened yet, there are times when I'm on the computer too late at night. I am so sorry for my *blooper* :oops:

Great looking Olive you have there. Sorry I can't help with identification.
