Nice pics and trees Jaco. Maybe its just me, but I would like to see the second tree in a smaller pot. I do LOVE the movement in the tree though. Very nice!

Jaco, any idea what the local name is for the Commihora. Rings no bells.

Commiphora - Kanniedood - translated into English as "Can not die"

Commiphora is a genus of African flowering plants. It includes about 185 species of trees and shrubs.

Trees on Exhibit in Regional Club Meeting

Commiphora is a genus in the Burseraceae or Frankincense family. It includes myrrh and other aromatic plants. Wonder which species this is.
I don't think I would try to put the olive in a smaller pot.
