Garden chatter, edible flowers, cooking and inside tales about our garden events.

A bench or table smothered in white snow is transforming. Lines may be accentuated as in the table and chairs scene; creating a surreal view. Or the picture can be softened as with the bench fronted by whispy oregano seedheads now holding the snow. Either way, while it lasts and gardening boots are put to rest, this moment is one of great beauty.
I am a garden designer and author; I have a love of gardens whether in town, village or countryside! Even City coutyards hold a special interest, especially with their historic associations.
I also have a particular interest in conceptual gardening which in my case come into the "garden art" category with many paintings transformed into growing borders here at The Manor House Stevington. I am also very keen on edible flowers and eat my garden flowers from my borders as well as orchard fruits and vegetables. I like to share them with others too when groups visits.
