  1. Love that photo. Always has reminded me of some of the paintings by Henri Rousseau, not, mind you, that I think gardens are like paintings!

  2. Oh you could be 'hedging' you bets here! Shot during a very heavy downpour in high Summer back in 2005..the clipped Junipers (Spartan) I removed years before Mr Oudolf found his axe..(biff/wallop) as i was bored with their success and the rather 'rare' (so i am told) Cordyline species met the axe too.
    It is painterly and i have a series of this scene shot at different times..perhaps i will post em!

  3. Beautiful.

    I came across your gaff in Paradise Gardens by Penelope Hobhouse (don't throw the 'phone down). I admired your Dragon trees, Spear lilies and Echium splashed across a colour dps.

    I could walk around your place on a warm Summer evening with an unfeasibly large glass of red wine.

  5. Rob I much prefer Andrew Lawsons 'Dream Gardens' (with Tania Compton) but the photo's were very old..Andrew was here i think in 1998..half a life time ago! His snaps were used in a 1999 G.I. article also.
