I‘m not a gardener but I’m fortunate to live with one and I love plants and flowers and adore this brilliant gardening guru and her beautifully written new book, just out. It’s useful and gorgeous, a great combination.

Nonstop wildlife antics go on in my “snag” or wildlife tree. Why I try never to cut down dead or dying trees, but transform them.

I started watering my Clivias again this week, after a couple of months of no drinks. Caring for these long-lived houseplants.
