I discovered a few weeks ago this greenhouse where the owner was growing bonsais. I was told that most of them were sold at an auction after her death a few years ago, but there are two Gingko Biloba and another tree that are still growing in the greenhouse.
I found this other greenhouse in a garden at Lake Como, built by a wall facing the lake. The structure had been maintained in good condition and it would be easy to put new windows to bring it back to life.

Entering a garden through a gate of trees gives the feeling of discovering a secret place.
My friend Yves, who is doing the cosmomix blog, has sculpted a tunnel in a hedge surrounding a pear tree, to reach his edible garden. Just in front of his house in a remote village of South Burgundy, there is also a path like a green tunnel which leads to a field.
