Blue Wall in the Jardin Majorelle

The light casts wonderful shadows on the wall of the blue-painted villa.
For lots more pictures and details of this magic garden go here .

The donkey waits patiently in the derb. He will eat anything given the chance. His harness made up of all sorts of things.
When I asked what the donkey's name was I was told just donkey --not Neddy or Fleur or anything - because he has a job rather than being a pet.
Robert made a full size painting of a donkey we saw in Djemma Elfna.

Fountain in Derb Djedid

Fountain in Derb Djedid, originally uploaded by schmidwix2.

This little fountain in the courtyard is always decorated with flowers.
The ivy climbs well and clings on to the tadelakt.
Above the fountain is a Berber tent peg that Ira gave us.
