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

MEDITERRANEAN BED AND BREAKFAST FOR GARDEN LOVERS
 By Edna Price
Many years have passed since 1996 and I imagine the Bed and Breakfast situation has changed since then.

I thought that whatever temporary accommodation you chose would be enhanced by roses round the door.
These roses were seen in Spain, Sparta and Corinth

I donít have any photos of leaves damaged by this pest so I thought to cheer you up with photos of oranges,

ACACIA STENOPHYLLA
By Hugo Latymer

This article  really had me stumped , there were no references in other issues of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN, no drawing to illustrate this article, I donít have a photo of this tree or even a postage stamp featuring it

Suddenly it came to me two days ago that surely there must be on official site of the flora of Australia and of course there is

You can see a photo of this tree and read all about it here
