Creating a garden since 2003 out of an old orchard, a barley field and a building site on the windy coast of southern Andalucia, Spain.
Welcome. I hope you enjoy my rambles and pictures and, hopefully, a bit of warmth if you're in cooler climes.

The first of the clematis this year and an added bonus that the new variety we put in (close up below) in January is flowering this year. The shade provides a beautiful contrast to the deep magenta of our original plant and the Greek blue next to it that flowers later.
We fell in love with this New Zealand bottle brush tree, even though we had no idea where to put it. Some very old osteospurnums had to go, and then we had room. I think it looks fantastic.
Yet another hibiscus as we couldn't resist its peachy colour, which doesn't show up so well in this picture.
And finally, the tiny rosebush that Mathilda gave me last year has turned into this - and the smell is heavenly.
The garden is true medicine at the moment, as my saying at the end of each page says.
