Greetings from Morocco

Jardin Majorelle in MarrakechOK, time to ‘fess up: I’ve been in Marrakech, Morocco. A very special treat in February for a SAD sufferer, and a huge boost to my flagging morale.

The sun shone every day, and it was glorious. Interesting from a gardener’s point of view, too; this is a shot of Yves St Laurent’s garden, the Jardin Majorelle (which contains a rather dignified and touching memorial to the man).

The yellow and blue theme runs throughout, with cacti and limpid pools making a rather special visual experience. Bizarrely, there seemed to be only French tourists there… which seemed a waste. If you’re ever in Marrakech, don’t miss it.

    Lucky you. I wish I could escape these dark, damp, miserable days which we’re experiencing at the moment. It must be such a boost to get some sunshine in February.

    The jealously is oozing out of every pore in my body. However, glad you had a good time! Been to Morocco once in the winter for a bit of much need sun myself once. Didn’t get up to Marrakech but as a woman, well the men try to steal you! So, maybe it’s just as well I staid put in Agadir, with my fake wedding rings on. More photos please xxxxx
