Flights of Fancy



Reflecting recently on Marrakesh -really detailing everything a gardening
 friend needs to see -I decided that


the Jardin Majorelle comes pretty close to the top of the list


as does the Bahia Palace (jasmine in their garden)


and the delights of jumbled tile.


A lover of flowers should rush immediately to the Mellah market
 and ask for Said and fill wherever they're staying with roses. 


This last photo is from a roof garden with desert plantings
 ( like Crown of Thorns) - much more sensible really considering the climate.

The photograph of the pond is beautiful. Striking colours and reflections. I'm still trying to work out how the bold yellow colour finds itself there...!

Did I post this twice - sorry if I did!

That pond looks very calm and full of the sounds of frogs diving in, dragon flies buzzing over the water...great picture.
