THE BOTANICAL GARDEN OF PALERMO
By Sabine Rossini Oliva
Although I have referred to this article before I thought to mention it again. The drawing by Derek Toms is based on a photograph supplied by Sabine Rossini Oliva of Ficus magnolioides in the Palermo Botanical Garden.
I believe this tree has recently been voted the Italian Tree of the Year

PATIOS FOR OUTDOOR LIVING
By Katherine Greenberg

The title of the article is self-explanatory

I looked up the meaning of Patio which is a Spanish word meaning courtyard, forecourt, yard, and small garden

Now for all the times I have visited Spain I havenít a decent photo of a patio so here is a scan of the drawing illustrating this article  in THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN

TALES OF TWO CITIES
By Tom Wellsted

The cities being Aix-en-Provence and Marseille
The author felt that Aix-en-Provence was rather rundown, garden wise, twenty-four years ago while Marseille had many hidden gardens.
Oleanders and evergreen magnolias are mentioned in Aix-in -Provence and Broussonetia in Marseille 
I wonder what these two cities are like today

Three photos from my archives
Oleander in Corinth
Evergreen Magnolia in Larissa
 and Broussonetia in Sparta
