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, sweet, but unwanted in the garden
Two young Roe Deer came to visit our rock garden
today, they are very sweet to look at, but I do object to them eating the first
signs of green growth in the garden.
