The view over the bay of Positano. On the left a fig tree and a lemon tree;
on the right Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and Callistemon citrinus.
A shady little pond surrounded by Zantedeschia,
fuchsias, a salvia and the ever-present Callistemon.
Pots on the terrace: Salvia coccinea ‘Lady in Red’, a pelargonium with
scented leaves, antirrhinums, pansies and sprekelias.
Various bougainvilleas shade the terrace.
Smudge, a rescued cat with Nandina domestica
on the left and Brunfelsia on the right, as well
as part of the myrtle hedge. There is a Banksia
rose on the pergola
