When I brought my house there was one large and rather ugly rubber tree by the main door.
Now there is lavender for my guests to brush passed as they enter.
The lavender hedge was grown from small cuttings I planted in pots about a year ago.
A closer look at the lavender.
Beside the lavender grow lemongrass and frangipane, each with their own special fragrances.
Here we look up at my entrance area over the passion fruit vine which is growing just below. I live in an old wooden house raised off the ground for ventilation and cooling.
Where once was one rather ugly rubber tree now I have an array of fragrances, flowers and food.
