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.

A riot of colour
What a fabulous red hibiscus, in honour of D's daughter, Helena.
The result of another mad spending spree - two more hibiscus, plus zinnias, margharitas and osteospurnum in orange and red for the pine-chip bed.
Grown from seed and thriving in this shady bed next to the Dame de Noche. I'm hoping that one of them will be one in red from a neighbour's seeds.
Where has the month gone.... it's taken a month to see what survived the really cold snap and apart from a datura and cape gooseberry, everything has regenerated, even the hibiscus bed, slowly but surely.
