my precious co-gardeners

I almost forgot to present my precious co-gardeners! Miele and Pepe

rosa banksia fortuniana

After three long pampering years, this April my Fortuniana finally decided to offer me her first blooms! What a joy!

She was raised from a cutting and is , alas confined to a pot... so far at least...

may flowers

Once I had a garden... until not that long ago, but as life sometimes is, now I forcedly became a balcony gardener. In other words, a gardener without land! 
But this did by no means stop my enthusiasm... after filling my , admittingly) very reduced space, I decided to venture on the web... and seed and cultivate the ethereal grounds. So here I am dear friends, old and hopefully lots of future ones!
