Ibiza - garden

In June this year, I was pulled in as part of a team to tidy up the garden of this original finca in Ibiza.  The finca is built around a medieval tower that was used as a defence against pirates for the community of the area.  It was great fun working with the locals.

You can see from the photo how prominent the tower is in this location,  The pines grow like weeds.

This is a cleared area showing the wonderful views over the farmland at the back of the site.

I even got to prune huge Orange trees, odd when I am more used to Bonsai and Japanese styled pruning.  Still good fun.  The fresh oranges taste great too!   I am hoping that this will turn in to a larger project where I can fully use my skills!
