Within a stone’s throw of the entrance of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, lies this nice big garden with in the middle a cosy B&B. I have the pleasure to live in this house, run the B&B and work and enjoy the garden. Since I’m not used to gardening in a Middle Eastern garden, it takes me some time to find the ‘rules’ in such a dry and extremely sunny climate. To remember and follow how plants grow through the year I started taking many pictures. That gave me the idea to (try to) post a picture every day!
If you would like to stay in the B&B you can have a look at the website. The B&B has four nice guest rooms and if you like you can also have your dinner here. And if you are lucky, some ingredients will come from the garden!
This Stonechat is hanging around in the garden of the Bed and Breakfast. I love to see him in the morning, sitting in the top of the conifer. Or on the Rosemary bushes. Using it as a take of and landing strip to fly to grab a berrie from the Vine.
Last year some guests found a loose bulb in Little Petra and brought it back to the B&B. I told them it’s the bulb of the Sea Squill. The left it here and it was lying in the living room as decoration and inspiration. The green leaves were starting to grow and I decided to plant it in the garden.
And now the first green leaves are starting to grow! I’m curious if it will still flower this autumn. Or if it’s waiting to flower in spring!
