My most favourite place for many years has been the Garden Museum at Lambeth. Completely entranced by the study of the Tradescants, plant hunters extrordinaire, I spent a lot of time based at the museum and have heard some wonderful evening lectures there.
The traditional knot garden is a little gem, perfect for an outdoor lunch with friends.

Had a rare quiet and sunny day to catch up with Wisley, managed to spend no money, not eat cake and not get lost on Battleston Hill as I used to do when I was studying a group of plants during my training. Oh the awfulness of having to ask a gardener, passing by on his tractor, how the hell do you get out of here ?

Enthused by the sunny weather last month, I seized the chance to take my new camera out and about. No plant was safe...I proudly held up the foot traffic in many a garden as I crouched, bent, stretched and happily shot away! I realised that no-one knows if you are any good as a photographer or not, they can't see your work on show, but maybe my odd angles and strange grimaces as I squinted through the viewfinder gave the game away.
