Great pics lee-ann, there's nothing like a healthy green foliage orientated garden, I like it!

By the way I cant remember who gave me the Echeveria at Akamba, and the other plants but the Echeveria has a flower stalk coming out - so if you remember who you were (I have such short memory), it's gone down a treat. Also the Butia I recieved at Akamba is doing really well, although the Rhapis was frazzled and died of exposure unfortunately. Also the little aloes have really picked up and they're mostering along - they look like they're becoming Aloe striatula.

Wonderful Garden Jon, very jungle-esque - love the seat with the red cussions on, thats fantastic - if I was an English Literature professor I could write all kinds of thing on symbolism based on your garden.. great layout.
