  • Ulmus minor 'Atinia', commonly known as the English Elm, formerly Common Elm, was, before the spread of Dutch elm disease, one of the most common tree species in central southern England. This specimen has somehow survived and is a truly beautiful loner.  #elm #tree #ulmus #englishcountryside #wiltshire #nature #autumn #elms #woodland #woods #naturephotography #treesofinstagram
  • Every day there’s something new to see in the garden. This prunus x subhirtalis ‘Autumnalis’ starts flowering just as much of the garden becomes dormant. It’s a useful small tree and the flowers are so pretty and delicate.

  • The dogs have been helping in the garden this afternoon. Mousing in the compost heap and checking if the medlars are ready to harvest. Gracie has had a serious trim. #notfluffy #compost #gardening #help #dogsofinstagram #dogs #medlars #harvest #outside #orchard #growyourown #horticulture #hunting #daschund #cotondetulear #cotonpom #autumn #englishcountrygarden #englishgarden #wiltshire #doggrooming
  • Viburnum × bodnantense 'Dawn'. If only scent could be digitally transmitted. The whole house is filled with the glorious smell of this viburnum which should flower all winter.

  • I’m going to leave all these seed heads for the birds and insects. Eupatorium, veronicastrum and grasses should still be looking good in January as long as we don’t get snow.  #decay #gardeningforwildlife #birds #seedheads #grasses #insects #gardening #horticulture #wiltshiregarden #perennials #plantsofinstagram #corten #watertank #englishgarden

  • Bit of an obsession with these little saxifraga fortunei. Shade tolerant and rather unusual. From #edromnursery in Scotland. #saxifrage #growsomethingnew #plantoftheday #gardening #garden #wiltshiregarden #plantsforshade #englishcountrygarden #flowerphotography #flowers
  • Ligularia przewalskii ‘golden ray’ Slightly invasive, but I’ll forgive that for the joy of these fluffy seed heads in the evening sun.

  • This has been an autumn of spectacular sunsets. Tonight I took this from a lay-by in Ireland and it is very beautiful. Haven’t been here for 20years.  #eire #sunset #emeraldisle #landscape #inspiration #leitrim #clouds #ireland #landscapephotography
