Sweet Olive and Dove

A couple of days ago, before the rains came, my Sweet Olive Tree was just covered with blooms. As soon as you walked outside you could smell it. It smells wonderful and it's pretty also. Now after some pretty hard rains, most of the flowers have fallen off. That's okay. They bloom several times a year.

I was trying to get a good shot of the Doves. This was the best; even though she wouldn't let me get very close. She must not have wanted to be photographed. I get lots of Blue jays, Doves and squirrels in the back yard eating the chicken food I put out. I'm betting the rabbit won't be back real soon after getting trapped in the chicken coop.

My Sweet Olive doesn't produce anything but a sweet smell.
