Detail of an olive branch

This is a detail from one of our trees where you can see the flower buds waiting to open. These are produced on last season's growth and so beyond the point where there are no flower buds at the end of the branch you have this season's growth which is a lighter green.

Between the leaf and the branch on this year's growth you already have the tiny bud which next year will turn into flowers and hopefully olives.
