The photinia in self’s backyard is covered with reddish new growth. The olive tree just behind it is getting huge! It’s so tall it dwarfs the house. She did not plant this tree: it started growing there about a decade ago. Encouraged, she bought an olive tree for the front yard, thinking it would help block her living room window from the relentless summer sun. That one, however, while taller, has hardly any leaves. Best laid plans . . . (sigh)
