Winter is not a good time to see green around my place. The light's all wrong

in this shot. This, however is the entry to my home. I live behind gates in

a walled villa. You can't see the bannanas and ginger with which I grace

the outside of the entry. And when you enter, you'll need to wander to find the

"front door" of a house where almost every room lives on a patio.

You'll know you found the entrance you want though, when

you reach the very shiny wood door

with the large brass lion knocker.
