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.


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!

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.

‘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.

Kitchen Terrace - Distinctive Garden

This quick transformation took place over a weekend. I got a cheap garden bench, painted it ‘Seagrass’ from Cuprinol’s Shades range and put a couple of half planters on the wall that a friend had picked up for me from Golborne Road Market. You can also see a great little metal post box that just adds a nice bit of interest that I found in a junk shop. I planted the bed with red geraniums, white Nicotiana and some fabulous blue Agapanthus. Very patriotic!
