Beautiful little gem of a garden reminds me of a Moroccan riad court yard, icon_salut

Is it all in pots, it looks very nice. I have a yard like that and am building up my plants to look something like yours, I like it. icon_thumleft

It looks really continental. Pleasing to the eye, restful and tropical. It is a real credit to all your hard work.

Looking good - it's always interesting to see what can be done with a small space. Big plants don't make it look smaller - they make it look bigger.

Thanks everyone ! I'm thinking of changing the pavement in a more mediterranian look, but haven't decided how and what yet.

Not every plant is in a pot. The palms and plants at the borders are in the ground, the pots are in front of the borders. During winter i cover the borders and take the pots inside. icon_thumright
