Palmieri, Firenze – Box garden  from level of tennis court

I've been enjoying Monty Don's Italian Gardens series on the ABC originally shown on the BBC. What I like about it is that he talks about they way gardeners were able to realise their passion. I know what that feels like, having a vision then planting and waiting and hoping it is like what you planned. I am amazed at how much patience gardening takes. My front garden has been a joy to plan and envisage and despite some problems I hope time will fix reality has been better than I hoped for.
