recognised later as works ofart, worthy to decorate nobles gardens. In the parterre, with its five-foot high hedges of box, there is a pro-fusion of flowers, including China roses, pale pink and deep crimson,pansies, pinks, poppies, snapdragons and larkspurs, with here and therean oleander or magnolia, and all along the terrace wall clambering overthe statues and niches are various climbing tea-roses, while round thecourt, between the marble benches, set baci; against the box hedge, areranged great pots of red or white azalea. Formerly the road that now leads to the Pincian Gardens ended atthe forecourt of the Villa Medici. This court is enclosed on three sides 21 by old ilex trees, clipped square. Beneath the deep shade of these, andopposite to the grand portal, is a simple well-proportioned fountain,over which arch the ilex trees, forming a vista with St. Peters in thedistance. This fountain is mentioned by Evelyn as having a jet fifty feethigh, but water is not so plentiful now. 22
