Mediterranean Fantasy

At the top of these stairs is a tiny Carex meadow leading to a garden room resembling an ancient ruin-
an idyll where lovers met in secret? The 'floor' inside the crumbling stone walls is an Italian mosaic tile floor with plants growing through the cracks.
The 'ceiling' is formed by the canopies of 4 statuesque olive trees.
A fountain, once the laundry trough on a French estate, cools the body and erases mundane thoughts with its gentle trickle.
Stone urns announce the entrance; at night they are gas-lit to set the mood for the ultimate romantic midnight picnic.
