The photo above was taken April 1999. The casina was originally the garden shed, but these days is the games room with satellite sports channels, pool table etc. A rose bed was planted in 1997 using David Austin English Roses which seem to thrive, so much so that the main problem we have is with people cutting them for the house! Establishing climbers on the side of the casina has been a slow process as the watering system doesn't reach and they are often forgotten about - but once the roots are nicely down the honeysuckles, rose and purple grape vine will take off. We began to plant the rocks to the side spring 1999. This whole area is an ongoing project. As you can see the casina woodwork has gone through a couple of colour changes - the latest is best.
