'The Devil's Saddle' - an amazing spot of Sardinia!

Welcome back at Mercurelli's! :)

I hope you have kept yourself wrapped and warm during these last days!

Has the weather affected your gardening plans? Or has it give you extra time to re-think and plan your garden? New orders and purchases? I did not resist and I acquired three new amazing plants at the latest RHS Great London Show...

{one of the plants acquired during the latest RHS London Show...can you name it?}

but before tell you more about them, let me share with you where I spent part of the past week:

I was back in the amazing Sardinia and I treated myself with an excursion at 'La Sella del Diavolo - The Devil Saddle', one of my favourite destinations ovelooking the 'Golfo degli Angeli - Gulf of Algels' {we can easily guess why it is so called!}

  I was used to 'escape' in this little corner of Paradise since I was a student in Bioecology... and I still love to come here when looking for relax, inspiration... or simply an extra-supply of Sardinian sun to better cope with the British weather! :)

Click on the images to see them enlarged...and have a look at these amazing natural combinations!

I hope you enjoyed this little peek in one of the most Biodiverse spot of Cagliari, my birthtown.

If you enjoyed the pictures of this post, please feel free to share them on Pinterest and to leave a comment.

Stay tuned! RHS Great London Show posts and a little surprise are coming! ;)
