Lovely ploughed field in Suffolk.
a detail of Fulani cloth – someone told me it was a bathmat for a tribal elder but that might be pure wishfulness. Same source, material given as woven bark. Cameroonian.
The lovely leaves of Heuchera ‘Chocolate Ruffles’ . Try it with Alchemilla mollis. The leaves complement by similarity in shape and there is a perfect colour contrast.

A swatch of magnificent Tudor brickwork at Okenhill Hall – this is where I went today instead of tending and tilling the vegetable plot. The house is fabulous – apparantly in the Domesday book, the garden and woods tasteful and superb and the sandwiches and cakes, the stuff of dreams.
Has to be this trunk spotted in Botanic Gardens, Rome
