if you remember the potted gardens of tokyo, maybe you will like the patios of cordoba? a lot more colour and brightness here perhaps than in tokyo pots, but for me a thrill of colour is a nice thing to see on a relatively bleak melbourne day.
the bbc produced 'around the world in 80 gardens' has been great to watch here on the abc. a wonderful episode on gardens of japan and china last week, and this week the mediterranean (including the courtyard gardens of cordoba). i really like the way monty the presenter maps the history and confluence of cultures over the beautiful gardens he shows.
