Can you believe it?

This is the house in winter, the photograph taken today, a cold January day.

It may be chilly outside but the house is toasty-warm. With thick stone walls and wooden shutters to keep out the cold in winter and the sun’s blistering heat in summer, the house is welcoming all year round.

Its hard to imagine that by June the vine will need to be cut back from over taking the front door, that the summer kitchen will be ablaze with blue plumbago and honeysuckle, that the bougainvillea will have bright pink flowers, and the roses will have grown tall and be full of blooms. Its all to come very soon!  Its a very easy garden to care for whilst providing ample shade and sun.
