What is happening in the February Garden?

The fountain that is the centre of our courtyard in what was the old farmyard

The lady of the fountain, the gentle water music that starts the morning here

Leaving the courtyard through the gate we had especially made for it

The first shoots of the Cardoons

I found the Rosemary flowering in the gravel border

The acid green Euphorbia is a welcome flower at this time of year

The Aloes are surprisingly hardy

The emerging day lilies and bulbs

Looking back into the courtyard full of secret corners

The sturdy reclaimed granite pieces that frame the Parterre

A terracotta head, a present nearly twenty years ago has acquired the patina of time

A little hidden corner behind the house - home to the washing line!
