Wrapping the tree

This morning was a busy morning as we drove over to the local hospital to donate a cheque for the new sensory equipment for the paediatric ward before going on site.

The great works continue with everyone pitching in with helping widen the path over the last couple of weeks. It looks amazing!

I arrived and went to Phil’s shed where he had left out some bubble wrap and string for me to borrow. Olive trees are susceptible to the cold in northern climates and wrapping the trunk will protect it from the worst of the frost. I spent several minutes battling the wind and the bubblewrap to get a good solid start to the wrapping.

Once I got it going, it was quite easy and I managed to cover the full trunk of the tree with several layers of bubblewrap. As I was starting to tie the bubblewrap to the tree l, Phil appeared and helped me untangle the string. Much to his amusement I was able to waddle around the tree as I wrapped the string. There are few bonuses to being short. Wrapping a tree seems to be one of them!
