Villa Kérylos -the Garden

From this part of the garden we look across to the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, dotted with magnificent mansions.

The garden contains a mixture of typically Greek plants: olive trees and vines, pomegranate and carob trees, acanthus and myrtle, oleanders and irises, pine and cypress trees, palm trees and papyrus all help create a Grecian look and feel in the Mediterranean sunshine.

JUst beautiful and very Greek I think! Were these taken recently? I notice everything is so green and lush. I don't remember if your area actually has an automne.

Pics were taken on October 7, Virginia. You are looking at olive trees in this photo and of course most trees are evergreen here.
