Chard/Frost 1.13

Frost, Knight’s Hill.

I’ve managed to get up to the allotments early on a few occasions this month to document some uncharacteristically severe frosts. Here the frost has built up on (someone else’s) chard.

Snow/garden 1.13

Snowfall, London.

Lots of snowfall here last night. And with so little wind, the settled snow makes for some intriguing shapes looking up at this vine at midnight.

Artfinder 1.13

Artfinder Online Gallery.

A selection of my work will now be on sale through the online gallery artfinder.com

 

New Forest

Fungus, New Forest, Hampshire.

Working in the New Forest, there are numerous piles of wood around covered with moss and fungus, thriving in these damp conditions.  Looking closer, I noticed  a shocking range of form and colour.

Cley, 11.12

Blakeney Point, near Cley next the Sea, Norfolk.

The Norfolk coastline is, even in November, so rich in life and colour. Just looking down at my feet, there’s Lichen, Sea-Blite, and Sea-Lavender.

You also get a lot of sky for your money in Norfolk. Looking up, here are a large quantity of, I think, Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Samphire, Norfolk.

Translucent spears of Samphire (Salicornia europaea) at Holkham Bay, Norfolk.

Summer rain 17.7.12

Summer Rain.

It’s not all bad this summer. Here’s a good example of how lush the garden is in mid-July. Rain on the leaves of Vitis ‘Brant’.

Philadelphus 7.12

Philadelphus (Mock Orange) Flowers.

Short-lived but richly fragrant flowers on this Philadelphus. I’ve been trying to shoot these in the studio but with limited results; they begin to wilt so quickly.

Wild Garlic

Allium ursinum (ramsons, wild garlic) at Ilam, Peak District.

Seas of wild garlic just beginning to come into flower at Easter. I snapped these during a walk in the Peak District at Ilam, Derbyshire. Wild garlic has plenty of common names: Ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, and bear’s garlic.

Primula 26.3.12

Primula Vulgaris. Knight’s Hill Allotments.

Primulas seem to be everywhere right now. Resisted strong urge to dig these ones up & rush them to the studio.

23.03.12 – Blue Shed

Allotment Shed. Knight’s Hill Allotments.

Went to collect scaffolding planks which were delivered to the allotments yesterday, but sadly all had been snaffled. This peeling shed caught my eye on the way back. Knight’s Hill has an extraordinary mixture of natural and artificial colour.

12.3.12 – Frogs

Frogwatch. Knight’s Hill.

Lots of frog activity in a neighbour’s pond this weekend.

9.3.12 Arum leaves

Garden. Arum leaves.

Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’ (Lords and ladies). This provides lots of engaging leaf colour which is much needed at this early part of spring.

9.3.12 Daffodils

Daffodils. Peckham.

On my way to the studio, cycling through Peckham, I noticed the first daffodils… Pedants: note my bike in background is precisely this colour of yellow.

9.3.12 – Viburnum

Garden. Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn’.

Despite being rather roughly transplanted from front to back garden, this Viburnum has provided flowers throughout winter with sweet honeyed scent. Just starting to fade now.

RHS Courses guide.

They’ve used my image of an Echinops bannaticus (globe thistle) for this new booklet.
