My marvellous Kent Claret vine ... I bought it from Victoriana Nursery to keep my ever-faithful calendulas company. Friend Wendy recommends the grapes for grape jelly.

Happy harvesting … my Great Auntie Bee's watercolour of farming life as it used to be, painted in 1950.

The creative mind in action … Coppicing days, Pheasants Coppice, Bishopsbourne.

History …In the garden of Serre de la Madonne, Menton. Seems I wasn’t the only admirer.

Happy birthday! ... My 50th Birthday Party 9th September 2010 at Jenny's, also with Hilda, Becca, Vittorio, Robin and Yvonne and Bianca - Caprese Michelangelo, Toscana. A very special day.

Birthday girl ... Mrs G picking flowers on the morning of her 80th Birthday, a few seconds before she realised that I had arrived.

Rberto crosses the busy road, the rush of London all around, reaches the thronging footpath on the other side, looks up and finds himself staring into a window filled with the promise of Spring, tulips, in full colour and bloom.

Patrick’s Flowers

Oh I could stand and stare for hours,
At Eliza’s lovely flowers,
'My Fair Lady' of Notting Hill,
Your tulips stop all traffic still.
