To me, or to the Stone Goddess with the broken hand? 

The perfume of the lavenders, the sun on the roses; gardens are the stuff of summer dreams.


  1. What a beauty! The doorway, the Jacaranda (too cold for here), the Cypress arches, it all looks gorgeous.

    1. It was a great pleasure to visit. I was very lucky.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! That's your house, right? :-)

  3. What a dreamy place...with just a hint of spikiness in the pot to the left of the stone goddess. Perfection!

    1. Yes, it is. At one point I did see a weed, but that was it.

  4. I'd love to live in a place like that, sigh....
    My parents have a jacaranda in their garden, but they live in Southern Spain, not in chilly Britain! Thanks for the tour, I enjoyed it!

  5. I still melt every time I see a Jacaranda in bloom despite the mess I know they make. I dream of having a garden large enough for the Jacaranda to do its thing without having to worry about what the fallen blossoms will do to the finish on my or visitor's cars, the pavement, etc.

    1. They reseed a lot, too, besides getting huge. I love them in other people's yards.

  6. Beautiful but too formal and linear for me. But I'll take the jacaranda and the rose in a hot minute. :o)

  7. Oh to live someplace where Jacarandas grow, sigh.
