Plants

These are just a few of the plants and flowers that I have grown in my garden or seen whilst out and about over the last year or so. You can see a larger version of each image and my comments by clicking on the photo.

​Spring

Nothing compares to a fresh sunny spring morning when the warmth of the sun first hits your face and your garden emerges from its winter slumber!

Summer

So much to enjoy in the garden as the garden really warms up. And with the summer season now lasting for so long, many flowers now flower well into the autumn.

Autumn

‘Is it still summer?’ I have never known it so mild! It’s always a bit warmer than the rest of the UK here in London, but with temperatures regularly in the high teens, the garden didn’t know if it was coming or going! The autumn colours were spectacular and a trip to RHS Wisley in Surrey for the Apple Festival was a great way to enjoy the autumn season.

Tulips - Distinctive Gardener

I love tulips! These orange beauties came from B&Q in the sale whilst still in bud. Having left them after flowering to build up their strength for next year, I then dried them out and kept them in the shed before replanting them in November – they soon come up again – what a bargain!
