One of the odds and ends about my job is the people i encounter,The good outweigh the bad and most of the gardens individual and engaging. The eclectic mix gives me a good gauge of english eccentricity!. The exeptional clients are the thinkers,artists,actors,writers and musicians, they are free of pomposity and have the individual and enchanting characteristic of being themselves, the gardens of these people have a real sense of place and have inspired!. As the gardener i can cohere to their enthusiasm of the witch hazel and the compost ect...things that can't be bought from Asprays and like in the view of Rousseau are priceless and high above the car-crash that is the schedule of our time.
The snapshot above is a frozen moment of color,smell and tenderness a plant that opens the doors to spring and is the most utopian thing you can grow. Free of pretension, deciduous, slowgrowing and sometimes overlooked. But having the individual characteristic of being it's-self.

Spring is just a hair off--can't wait. The catalogues arrive and we sniff lilacs off the page--
