Just to remind you of the living wall in Madrid
It is now several years old and some plants appear to do better than others

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Not my morning walk today but the result of several years of morning walks taken by our friend Michalis. He has produced a card showing many of the plants that he has photographed over the years, with their names. Sadly my attempting to photograph his photos does not do them justice.

A mix of flowers and fruit today. The last one is bergamot.

David, the Hibiscus trionum is one of yours.

Yesterday I posted a photo of the first (unopened) flower on our Dragon Fruit. This morning we discovered it had opened overnight. My hand is for comparison of size.
