>The air is strangely humid, there are clouds in the sky which were not used to seeing here in May, and the recent rain has encouraged far too many weeds to grow. But at lunchtime today the garden was peaceful – the only sounds were the bumbling of bees, the hooping of hoopoes and the get real call of golden orioles.

As one of our neighbours said the other day as she walked past on the way to her garden, Cest un paradis (its a paradise). After a mornings work at my desk its a place for unwinding, relaxing, contemplating the growing cycle of plants and enjoying the excitement of each seasons produce. We feel lucky all the time to be living in Gabian, and in the garden we feel luckier still.
