What lies behind these huge garden gates, barring trespassers from illegal entry? What hidden Mediterranean beauties kept protected from prying eyes? I long to ring the doorbell, but am denied getting even close to the door. Go away, curious traveller. These gardens are a sanctuary for only those who stay here.
Alas, I am only allowed a glimpse of the mysterious gardens along the quaint narrow streets of Anacapri. I have to be contented with that. I'll just walk down the hill to where the main street is and visit that cottage where the door is open all day. The lady of the house is happy to let visitors come in to her pretty garden to admire her plants. Such lovely blooms to inspire the weary traveller to seek more than a glimpse of gardens on the lovely Isle of Capri.
