  • So much loveliness in the garden today. Fresh growth on the box, first tulips (brown sugar), hepatica and blue sky. Feeling thankful to be able to be working in the garden. 🙏

  • Happy 24th birthday to the most handsome, kind, clever boy. Love you Tommy. We’re so proud of you. @trcarnage
  • Isn’t it amazing what you can get through the post? A delicious parcel of succulents. Support nurseries even if you only have a tiny space to grow in. @surreal_succulents  #succulents #mailorder #supportsmallbusiness 
Also the fabulous @arvensisperennials are selling to the public during the lockdown. It’s a brilliant trade nursery. #gardenplants #gardening #horticulturetherapy #containergardening #pots #terracottapots
  • So much birdsong in the woods this morning. Goldfinches and blue tits. #ladybirds
  • Akebia quinata ‘Alba’ already looking beautiful on the arch. Such a reliable and vigorous climber which tolerated the cold winds so well.  It looks delicate but is remarkably tough. #climbers #akebia #semievergreen #gardening #englishcountrygarden #floweroftheday #flowersoftheday #wiltshiregarden #birdsong #spring
  • The hunter. So poised until Gracie spoils it. #hunter #hunting #daschundcross #dogsofinstagram #lovemydogs #cotondetulear #inthegarden #englishcountrygarden #dogs #spring
