Photo a day....25th May.

More photos of yesterday's garden.

I just loved everything about this garden. It is simple, but really well thought out. If you click on the link in yesterday's post you'll see more about the ethos behind it.

Basically the big mechanical "flower" in the centre is a rain catcher and a pump. When the little glass domes sense that the garden is dry they communicate with the mechanism to draw water up from the borehole. This irrigates the garden through five very narrow streams (photo 3) and eventually drops down and is returned to the underground reservoir.

The planting is also very simple but beautiful.
