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
THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN:
IMAGE, STYLE OR CULTURAL EXPRESSION?

By Russell A. Beatty 

I am posting a photo I took one December of the bright orange fruit of the Lotus tree

The cover illustration for THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 31, January 2003 is by Polly Morris

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.
It was growing in what remains of an ancient quarry on the beach at Puria / Πουριά

Crithum maritimum is mentioned in several issues of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN, I have chosen number 95, January 2019 for you to read
BOTANISING IN TUNISIA by Jonny Bruce

There are photographs illustrating this article here

The cover illustration for the journal number 32, April 2003 is a lithograph by Adrian Bartlett entitled ‘Palm and balcony, Nice’

There are several articles about Palm trees in the same journal

I am pointing you to

PALMS AND THEIR REQUIREMENTS
 By Konstantinos Theodoropoulos

Here is a photo, which I took recently, of some of the Palm trees at the port of Corinth. Now looking at the photo I see there are the shadows of another three Palm trees
