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.

Roe Deer, Toadstools & Red Monkshood
A Roe deer is now a regular visitor to my
garden, she does no damage to the plants; on this occasion she appeared to be
eating some mushrooms/toadstools which I have never seen before.
There are many toadstools in the garden just now but I must admit I do not know there names.
