Previously I lived in Sweden for nearly 20 years and my quest there was to hybridize auriculas to produce ever better plants suitable for the harsh Swedish climate. Whilst living there I also created and run Sweden’s Auricula Club. I've now returned to England to continue growing auriculas together with my daughter-in-law, Iris. Iris is also an enthusiastic & skilful Iris grower; many of her wonderful Irises can be seen on this blog.

Caught in the act!!!!!!!!!!!!
Roe deer looking bit guilty.
I have a small herd of Roe deer that appear
almost every day in the fields around my garden. They very rarely come into the
garden, but I found this young lady in the nature part of the garden. I asked
her what she thought she was doing and she replied that she was just pruning
the maples for me!!!!!!!!!!.
The Magpies have also nested in a conifer in the
garden and this year’s young are in competition to see who can make the most
