    I appreciate that. Our deck above the outdoor living room is much to be desired after 17 years and we don't use it, just has Solar Panels up there now.

    We just had our gravel path paved and it was 12 Euros square meter. It is laid on Po (ground stone at 1,50 sack) as they do Cal├žada (cobblestone) here.

              Lovely blooms. My Scilla peruviana had lots of leaves but no blooms this year and it is in the same pot it has been for 13/14 years. They often have a year's rest.

                I don't often put pictures up of the Dining Patio but tided it up this morning by cutting back the Brugmansia and the three Hibiscus under it, a White with Red Throat to the right (which goes to two meters), Yellow in the middle and Double Peach to the left.

                Archway to the Dining Room and Jungle Room covered with Lonicera japonica (done from a cutting) and Podranea ricasoliana ...

                ... along the back of the Outdoor Dining Room, L-R Tecomaria, Pink Brugmansia with Transcantia 'Blushing Bride', Schefflera variegata and Dracaena. To the right L-R Fiscus elastica, ZZ Plant, Pachira aquatica ...

                      I'll stop inundating you all soon as we will go through our 'no flower just green' heat months. But my Platycodon (Balloon Flower) which has been in this pot since 2007 is flowering as it does without fail every year.
