Minoan Frescoes -do they show gardens?

Reconstruction of the fresco from the villa at Agia Triadha, by M.A.S. Cameron. LM IA, c 1600-1500 BC
Back in December I posted the question, did the Minoans make gardens? It is a question that will probably never receive an absolute answer.  But on the subject of interpreting Minoan landscape frescoes and the possibility that they depict sacro-religious gardens, I've just discovered a post on the blog Art History Attacks.  More fuel for the fire!
