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.

We got the seeds from an orchid tree on the banks of the River Iro in our home town and have nurtured this spindly thing for at least two years. A while ago we gave one burdgeoning tree to a friend. She planted it out in her drive, s.e. facing wall, very poor soil and below is the result. El jefe has protected ours against winter's westerly chilly winds with a mesh-clad cylinder. It's against a morning glory-clad fence.
We hope it will eventually do as well as the one we gave away.
