Today was my first day working in a new garden.  Initial exploration is always fun, finding the lost and the unloved amongst the more strident.  First the favourites – countless roses of all persuasions, a similar collection of clematis, dieramas popping up everywhere, as are passion flowers and agapanthus.  The backbones include Arbutus unedo, the blue coned Abies koreana, camellias, hibiscus and magnolia.  In two separate courtyard gardens,  jasmines and wisteria flourish and nerines and citrus are safe in their terracotta pots.  So many treasures, I am looking forward to getting to know them.

I’m sure there is something I’ve forgotten to tell you, it’s on the tip of my tongue …………… how could I forget him?  A beautiful, strapping polar bear of a dog called Zeus.  I am looking forward to getting to know him too!
