Back in January you may remember (say/pretend you do) that I couldn't bear to put the Christmas tree out into the cold with the other abandoned trees. Eventually I moved him out onto the balcony and look at him now! Despite what I thought, with him coming from warmer climes, he's loving the Neapolitan sunshine. See the new branches at the top of the tree - this is what I've tried to capture in the photos - just in case it's not clear :)
The plant you can see near Christmas tree is Jasmine which is in full bud and is wrapping her branches around the Christmas tree. Because we only have a balcony and no garden, space is limited so they have been forced together. They are now, literally inseparable. Aw.
