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.

A splash of orange.
& Marigolds in my annual border, there’s some red hot pokers in there
The sweet peas have finally started to bloom.
Some of the auriculas are also still blooming. /Ray
