THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 7, Winter 1996/7

This article is about the difference between Mediterranean gardens and how, because of the different climate, they are not English gardens.

On page iv opposite the article is a full-page illustration of
WINTER FLOWERING SHRUBS by Derek Toms which I scanned for you

Unfortunately, I donít seem to have seen any of these winter flowering shrubs, apart from Rosemary, to snap them.
 I do have a couple of scans of postage stamps, quite different in style, featuring Rosmarinus officinales , Rosemary

MOLES:
A SCOURGE
OF THE GARDEN
By Piero Caneti

THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 7, Winter 1996/7

The article is illustrated with a drawing by Derek Toms of a fanciful mole.

I am adding here a scan of a postage stamp issued by the UK in 2004 and the information about the mole on the presentation pack.

Hilary, this reminds me of the time a few years ago that I visited a newly opened hardware store here in Cyprus. They had obviously not done their research very well as I found an entire section dedicated to mole traps and equipment for deterring moles. Moles are not native to Cyprus, there isn't a single one on the island.

THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN

In this article  there are   thoughts on how to define a Mediterranean garden.

Quercus ilex and Pinus halepensis are mentioned
Here is a postage stamp depicting the first and a photo showing the second, if I have correctly identified it.
