Not the sunniest of days, but did not keep me from visiting one of my favourite places, San Anton Gardens.
A must see place if one likes Gardens. Built by Grand Master Antoine de Paule to complement San Anton Palace (now the residence of the President of Malta) San Anton Gardens are located in Attard and are some of the most beautiful gardens in Malta with a large variety of beautiful flowers and trees from all over the world, some of which have been there for hundreds of years .

The Times.
Malta ed. - Sunday magazine ... writing seven pages about the restored rooms at San Anton palace and some very nice things about my new paintings and ceiling in its Grand Salon....

“......... Each room now has its own very distinct use and character, but bar the red Music Room, it is the green Grand Salon that truly captures the old spirit of San Anton and the modern aesthetic of Malta.
Upon entering, in fact, your gaze is directed to the ceiling, where a fresco of the sky is framed by Maltese lace motifs and depictions of moths (‘baħrija’) which all seem to point towards a monumental and dramatic antique Murano glass chandelier, meanwhile loosely mimicing a Maltese cross. At eye level, the room offers a pastel scene of Malta’s indigenous flora and fauna painted on canvas towering over you. Created by Dutch artist Peter Korver, who spent a month researching and a month prepping before actually creating them in the Netherlands, these works bring the famous San Anton Gardens deep into the heart of San Anton Palace. . .
