The olive tree is my most favorite of all trees. I love the contrast of the silvery green leaves and the purple olives. Ojai is filled with olive orchards, so on the drive to my family's house I made sure to stop and take a few photos.
VIVE LA FRANCE - Depending on the region, the first olives are harvested in September. Olives can be picked at any time during the ripening process, from when they are green until they are fully ripe and black.
