What makes a garden?

Or more precisely, what makes a garden that, (if it’s lucky), gets watered for only a few weeks of the year?……….

I’m not going to lie to you Dear Reader, it would be nice to one day wander through somewhere lush, fragrant and green.

But for now….. I’m happy enough listening to the hot wind rattling through dry grass, and seeing sand and stone change colour, from blue to white, and on through mauves and pinks, to gold, and back again.

    I’ll go and water it secretly and next year when you go there you’ll think it’s a mirage of an oasis in the desert! 😛 I know how much work a garden requires in such a climate…We barely have a garden here as well…
