Sir Edward James (1907 - 1984), his gardens, "The Bamboo Palace", and " El Castillo" in Xilitla, Mexico

Time for a great eccentric to enter in
to this blog - Scottish born Sir Edward James who arrived in Xilitla in 1945 a town set in the Sierra Madres , Mexico. A wild mountain range with an incredible tropical forest. Here did Sir Edward establish a home where he could and did capture the beauty and splendor of this scenic paradise.
Here is some more fantastic photos;

Sir James was educated briefly at Eton, and then at LeRosey in Switzerland, then at Christ Church, Oxford. A friend of Magritte and Dali. Great supporter of the arts and also had the world's greatest collection of surrelist art. Dali has once called him "the incarnation of surrealist life".
