    Dublin (Irish: Baile Átha Cliath, "Town of the Hurdled Ford") is the capital city of Ireland. Its vibrancy, nightlife and tourist attractions are renowned and it is the most popular entry point for international visitors to Ireland. It's disproportionately large for the size of Ireland with nearly two million in the Greater Dublin Region - well over a third of the Republic's population! The centre is, however, relatively small and can be navigated by foot, with most of the population living in suburbs.

    Think you don’t have enough room to green up your act? Not everyone has access to outside space or what we traditionally think of as a garden, but we all have window ledges, doorways, stairways and unloved spots. My Tiny Garden is bursting with exciting ideas and savvy solutions to help you transform any neglected nook into a plant paradise. With mini meadows, blooming balconies and plant-packed pavements, we’ve unearthed over 25 amazing unconventional green spaces. Meet the friends who developed a living wall inside their LA office, the London firefighter who rescued a neglected roof terrace, and the Berlin-based photographer who found a picture-perfect community garden at an abandoned airport. You’ll pick up all the best tips and tricks as each gardener shares their small-scale expertise, from pots on wheels to vertical planters. Packed with practical advice and design ideas, the latest title in Pavilion's exciting gardening series also provides pointers on key aspects of cultivation - from planting suggestions through to after-planting maintenance and the lowdown on which plants will prosper in which place. Plus, practical projects including an aquatic terrarium, an alpine wall planter and a desktop garden will help you make the most of every inch. Whether you’re looking to create a tropical oasis, a flower-filled patch, or a wildlife wonderland, get inspired, let your imagination grow and enjoy your tiny garden.

    Now don't start getting ideas. I am not a philosopher. I'm a dog. But I look like a philosopher, they say, and I'm not sure the distinction is as great as you might think. I'm what's known as a Rhodesian Ridgeback. My forebears used to hunt lions in Africa, but I'm a modernized urban specimen. I don't hunt much of anything. 
     
    I was born somewhere on the plains west of Uppsala, Sweden. In the beginning I was blind and tumbled around with my siblings. We pooped and bit each other and nursed, and our mother — who I must admit was kind of a bitch — tried to raise us to the best of her ability. Without all that much success, I must say too. 
     
    When I was about two months old I was adopted. Two long-legged humans, a man and a woman, came and picked me up, loaded me in a car and drove into town. This is the story of the eleven years we spent together.
