Lost in paradise

Yesterday we were fortunate to be invited to cruise around a friend's friend's garden in the lower alpine slopes.  Endless recommendations were shared but unfortunately no pen and paper to hand meant that valuable knowledge disappeared into the ether.

One of many veg beds

Gleditsia - the only plant name we remembered of these photos!

Amazing conifer - small leaves; grows into beautiful huge cone shape

Very prolific rose

Authentic date plant - we were told

Clever use of discarded ski poles

The most beautiful dusky pink
