Mr. Aldo lives in town of Pazin, Istria. He spends his days of retirement cultivating his interesting garden that surrounds his house. The garden is placed on a rather steep slope with a gravel path winding from the top to the bottom of it.
Mr. Aldo has green hands and, in spite of being an amateur gardener, has much success in shaping small trees that look almost like bonsai trees. You can see them on the pictures.

The present soil and site conditions are used to it's most. Since there is lots of lime stones in the soil he made gravel garden with low growing perennials and small trees.
When you make the turn on the path, you can see a sea of Festuca glauca and Festuca scoparia.
I was there in spring, when Magnolias, Prunus and Chaenomeles were in full bloom.
Hemerocallises and Festucas.
