This weeks seems to have flown by - who could believe that today sees our final post from Melanie of Cecilia Fox?! THANK YOU Mel for such a beautiful week, I know I'm not the only one who is keen to get into their garden, big or small, this weekend. - Jenny x

Thought you didn't have room for a garden? Take some tips from the Greeks. While I was in Greece a month ago on a yoga workshop I was so inspired by the incredible potted gardens in all of the little villages on the beautiful Island of Paros where I was staying. Everyone has a garden that they love to tend, it's part of everyday life.

The colours are amazing, that gorgeous saturated light of late summer in the Mediterranean.

You've got to love a Bougainvillea, they just make you feel like you're in the Mediterranean even when you're not!
