Now and then…

1 August 2010

Next week, I’m very excited to be heading off to Italy for a couple of weeks with my best friend Valentina from New York.

In the meantime, if you’re reflecting (like me) on quite how time is flying past in 2010, consider these photos of the Old Parsonage at the end of March – and yesterday. It’s amazing what four months mean in a garden.  It’s strange to think that in four months, Christmas will be knocking at the door… for now, I hope you are loving this summer.

I too have just discovered your website and blog- all from seeing some of your gorgeous napkins in The Sunday Times Homes section. Love them and love it!
Inspiring images, can see how this feeds into your innovative shop.
enjoy the sunshine. Jan


I have just discovered your blog – it is lovely – why don’t my garden pictures look as wonderful as yours? I was delighted with them until I saw yours. We love Whittington Court and will be going to their fete in September.


I think the trick for garden pics is early morning or late evening light and to get down low!! That hides all the bare patches – believe me, they exist ;)…

Yes – I am afraid I can’t make the Whittington festival on the 4th of September but if there are other readers interested, for more details look at the website

Regards, Ben
