Title: My garden today
Post by: Janet Ibbotson on March 03, 2018, 07:15:27 PM
My garden is on the North East coast of Skopelos at about 100 metres above sea level.  Today was the first real day of spring and I promised I'd try to post some pictures.   Most of the garden is not irrigated and has to survive on little attention in the summer months when we rent the house out to guests.  Hence I try to focus on shape and foliage rather than flowers.

Well done Janet - you have some lovely planting showing how variations in form and colour, even if mainly foliage, can make a very attractive garden. I particularly like the stepped path area where one of my favourite ' backbone' plants - Euphorbia-  makes its mark and softens the hard landscaping. In the photograph it is in flower but even when not it continues to have an impact.
