  • Fascinating and rather beautiful mould in a rough part of the garden today. Little milky bubbles, wet to the touch. Any ideas? #fungus #mould #milky #nature #mycology #wiltshiregarden #whatisit #fungi #countrygarden @the_rhs @gardenersworldmag #ectoplasm
  • What a glorious autumn day in the garden. Over 20 degrees in the sunniest spot. So much to enjoy still and Simon could read the paper while I planted 100’s of bulbs for next spring. #heaven #gardening #tricyrtis #crocus #aster #gardenbench #hydrangea #goodhusband #cerciscanadensis #autumncolours #wiltshiregarden #englishcountrygarden #englishgarden

  • Throwback Thursday. I painted this about 10 years ago during a ‘Corot’ phase. Might revisit ......

  • Definitely autumn. Parrotia persica is a lovely tree with great autumn colour. It comes from Iran and southern Azerbaijan and is closely related to the witch-hazel genus Hamamelis. This one was planted 2 years ago, it should get quite large. #trees #parrotiapersica #autumncolours #autumn #gardening #arboretum #wiltshiregarden #leaves #azerbaijan #iran #witchhazel
  • Through the round window. I cut this hole in our boundary hedge a few years ago, love peeking through. .

  • Odd planting combination of cycas revoluta and ivy. Everything looks good with sunshine though. #green #textures #leaves #plantcombinations #cycad #cycasrevoluta #ivy #green #gardening #plantchoices #spanishgarden
  • Crataegus persimilis ‘prunifolia’. One of the best small trees for autumn colour. #gardentree #plantchoices #plantsofinstagram #autumncolours #autumnleaves #gardening #wiltshiregarden #plantoftheday #crategus
  • Tulbaghia violacea, society garlic, stunning in mass planting. Not in Wiltshire, obviously. I love this plant and the flowers are great as an edible garnish. #floweroftheday #flowersofinstagram #tulbaghia #edibleflowers #catchingthelight #gardening #societygarlic #kitchengarden
