In my last post I did a tongue-in-cheek inventory of my garden’s features. Today I walked around, camera in hand, to substantiate my claims. Here goes:


– We’re in an old town, so we could be a town garden;

– We have walls all around, so we could be a walled garden;


– We have a balcony covered with creepers so we could be a hanging garden;

– We have an orangery  (yes, really!) with a number of citrus trees and palms  so we could be a mediteranian garden;


– We have a lot of plants in containers so we could be a container garden;
