These gardens are well worth a visit. They are beautifully laid out by a team of gardeners with a highly professional approach to landscaping and a knowledge of how and where to place dozens of plant varieties. The result is a garden full of colour, shape and surprise.

This male White Death Crab Spider (far smaller than the female – check the image of two days ago) is a master of camouflage. Look how close the colour of the legs and cephalothorax are to the lavender stalks. He was considerably smaller too than the bees buzzing around the lavender, but he had every intention of lunching on one.
