Dinner

Dinner with some of the team at "L'Isola d'Ora", fantastic fish restaurant, huge starters and good company.

The journey back to the hotel was very 'dolce vita', small, narrow cobbled streets, full of parked cars and we swung past the Colosseum before heading out to the outskirts where I had been advised to book in.

Yesterday in the Guardian

Since it's the last weekend in February, the Guardian has  produced a special supplement on waking the garden up. Over the autumn and winter I have "Ground Force'd" my garden and have written about it on my web site's garden project page, ( see also my garden project page at flickr), and I'm sure the advice and book references will be very helpful.

One of the articles, 'Complements of the season' has a series of pictures, one for a garden 'in a land of hosepipe bans' with poppies and gravel, which looks good, perhaps I'll try some poppies. Another of the articles lists five gardens that are inspirations for the supplement's authors, including Wakehurst Place, part of Kew Gardens which is quite close. Mind you so is RHS Wisley.

The 5Best... this week, lists five best islands. Their No 2 is Iceland and they recommend sailing down the west coast of Iceland in a 60' racing clipper with Borea Adventure.

Travel for Art's sake

The travel section reviewed a Belgian art festival, Beaufort 2006 (english page) and highlighted some Elephant sculptures. See here..., which includes a picture, but not as good as the one in the paper.
