Swiss Sue, that could indeed be it. I never saw it in flower, it was in Gran Canaria in December. Thank you.

A pool isn't my top priority because I can't swim, but, daft as it seems a boat is! And they cost about the same.

Thank you Dovefromabove. I took Gerald Durrells; Corfu trilogy with me on  my recent visit to Corfu It was a lovely read the first time in ages that I have laughed out loud whilst reading. It's one of those books that one can easily read again and again.

Bilje, I have just been on google and I don't think that is it, the pods on the Carob tree hang in bunches. These seemed to hang singly also if I remember correctly the leaves were similar to a Rowan tree, (mountain Ash).

Can anyone identify a tree from which I have the seed pod. I took it from a tree outside my apartment in; Gran Canaria many years ago. It is about 6 inches long and resembles a large pea pod. I still have it it sounds like a type of marracca? ( spelling)    musical instrument!

Does anyone know what this shrub is? I was given a cutting 2 years ago and now it is 5 feet tall. The lady who gave it to me said  she thought it was called a Hymalayan Fuschia? But I can't find any reference to that name,

Thank you all, it's certainly food for thought.Oh and pomegranates do grow here, I've picked them in another piece of land I was shown also oranges.

In all probability, this time next year I will be in my new house in Corfu! It is in almost an acre of what is at the moment an olive orchard. I have been on amazon and could not find anything relevant to a new garden. The soil is; red, but that means almost nothing. I am a gardener of average knowledge but these days unfortunately, of limited ability due to a "bad back" Any ideas?
