This picture gallery shows customers gardens, my garden and shots from nature. Plants and gardens are not static – I work with this when I am designing. Winter starts us off with silhouettes and low light. Spring breaks dormancy with woodland bulbs grabbing the light before trees leaf up. Summer is high colour and performance before we get to Autumn. The optimum time of the year to plant before the frosts come, the dahlias are lifted and the leaves blasted from the trees.
