I think it was when I moved to England that I began to appreciate a well-considered bit of greenery. Since then my genteel delight has taken on a rather greedy desire for more, bigger, better. It's lucky then that my in-laws happen to be expert gardeners and happen to own some rather fertile land in a lush part of the world. Here are a few pictures that frankly do the real thing absolutely no justice.

Carlo and I just got back from the Philippines. We had to make a stop over in Manila, and we were happy to find the newly built Manila Marriott Hotel. It was a gorgeous resting spot, one which I'm sure we will stay at again, but it did not feel like an accurate reflection of the city itself. The city at large presents a very different experience, one we sadly did not have time for on this trip.
