It is a summer morning in this oasis of green calm. A bubble of peace in a noisy world. This garden holds, like many others, a jumble of plants. Some carefully chosen after a visit to a garden center, some left overs from a previous gardener. Others creeping in, borne on the wind, growing quietly, unnoticed, lifting heavy paving with tender green shoots, softening the hard edges. People need gardens, parks, a pot with a plant, they need green, to soothe and calm, to marinate the soul and to breathe out. This is the house where I stay when I visit London and after a day scuttling around on hot pavements, through crowds of people this is perfect to come back to. It is a retreat.
Another large watercolour, I shall live with it on the easel for a while, until I am sure it is really finished... I think it is but you never know!
