Once more Hilary you have brought back wonderful memories with your postings. I revisited the article regarding Cali Doxiadis's garden in Corfu. We went there with the MGS a few years ago. The house was so impressive and we enjoyed the garden and the Corfian cuisine. It was also a chance to see where Laurence Durrell wrote some of his poetry.

The cover illustration of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 104, April 2021 is by Peter Wight

We are not told if it depicts sunrise or sunset

This link will take you to a photograph of sunrise at the Akti Salonikiou, Sithonia, Halkidiki, Greece taken by Jorun Tharaldsen
https://www.mediterraneangardensociety.org/information.html
There are many interesting articles in the link  about Mediterranean gardens

The  photos of the sunset were taken last June at the Kalamia beach here in Corinth
The first photo taken  by my husband on his mobile phone at 8.34 and a few minutes later by me on the camera
In more normal times it was a regular sight to see tourists and locals dashing down to the edge of the sea to get a good photo of the sunset

These sunsets are amazing. On my cell phone there are sunsets posted by my 'Sardinian' friends for the month of July. I don't know how to tranfer them to my computer or vice versa.  I am still waiting for some lessons.

I have not yet learned how to use my cell phone . It seems to be just too difficult for me. However, saying that, I did manage to snap my Covid certificate yesterday. Now to remember where it is on the phone if and when I am ever asked to produce it!

You are correct Hilary. The photograph of the pomegranate is lovely.  It promises so much. Our poms did not get to mature because they were eaten by the tree rats.  There are some pomegranate 'shells' on the trees which glisten in the sun.
