The cover illustration of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 30, October 2020 is an etching by Delia Delderfield and given the title
“LOTUS FRUIT, GREECE”

Persimmon, Diospyros kaki, Lotus is mentioned in many issues of
THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN

I chose number 27, January 2002 to read

It depicts Sea Campion, Silene maritima, and Rock Samphire, Crithum maritimum

I have a photo of Crithum maritimum taken in 1996 on the island of Skyros.

THE SWEET POTATO (Ipomoea batatas)

Earlier, on the day when I was preparing this post, I was desperately trying to find a recipe for sweet potatoes on my computer or in old recipe books, my computer suddenly, for no reason that we could understand, was continuously off line.
Next time my husband brings home sweet potatoes I hope he brings two oranges also so that I make the meal Freda recommends

The cover illustration for the Journal 36, April 2004 is by Kostas Beveratos and shows the chapel of Aghia Fotini on the island of Patmos

I don't have a photo of this chapel but I do have a photo of Patmos taken from a boat in 1987 showing a chapel in the foreground and the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian dominating the skyline. We were on a day trip from Chios and spent a long time in the monastery and its museum

The second photo was from a cruise ship which didn't tie up in Patmos and anyone wanting to visit the island was taken off the ship in a launch, we gave this a miss
