For the full text of this article see The Mediterranean Garden No 55, January 2009

Thunbergia grandiflora and other plants in front of the kitchen window.
Clematis armandii was not happy here.

Looking down from the terrace to the courtyard and the steps to the front door.

Liriope muscari on the terrace.

Plants on the terrace are closely massed together. Here Ruellia brittoniana,
yellow Lantana camara, white Centranthus ruber and one of Spyros' cannas.

A dark-flowered cultivar of Duranta erecta, white Lantana camara and
white Lagerstroemia indica are set against the green background of a

neighbour's mulberry tree.
