Hortus de Laura Calluria

and here is the hortus (garden)where we grow ornamental, culinary as well as medicinal plants. Our cheif gardener (he is an absolute gem! Tarquinius bought him in Alexandria as a present for me) and I have tried to compile this list (left frame) of the plants we have or have heard of.

What do you think of the murals we had painted on the back walls of the garden? We even have a summer triclinum (upper right) in the coolest corner, for when it is simply do hot to dine inside!
