Gorgeous gardens jsantos.
Apart from the 'troubles' we've only ever heard nice things about South Africa; a brother of my husband went out to Johannesburg to meet his girlfriend's parents there. He never returned to the UK! Some of my children's cousins are still there.
I'm sure you will be able to create a wonderful garden in Ireland too - probably plenty of rain, like England, (which is where I grew up).

I'm sorry to say this "jonia", but your pictures are from ideas4gardening, and were posted there by their administrators and are considered public domain, but are not from your gardens as you've claimed
The pictures I post may not be the best, but they are mine

Gulp! I'm shocked that anyone would do that.
I wonder if there will be a reponse and/or apology - probably not.
Like you Dan, when I post pics they're my pics, or if not then I will say where I got them, off the net, a magazine, etc.
Shaking my head.

I wasn't sure if I should say anything, but even to the untrained eye, the lighting on the orchid gardens seemed not to come from natural sunlight, so was a bit skeptical.
If you follow "her" link, they are posted online for a website produced by Helen Whitfield, and leads to another site that offers you a pecentage of money if you can get others to sign up and purchase some landscaping literature
I just think, if we are trying to keep this forum from flopping and folding, we should be keeping everything at least "above board", so nobody can point to us and say these forums are nothing more than rehashing of others pictures.........my 2 cents
