Nature inspired

(thrift on the cliffs)

I’ve never been too fond of a manicured and preened garden. Those that are immaculately measured out, and tidied. I’m looking for a wild exhuberant garden, one that follows the seasons, and feeds the wildlife that live here. So I like to take some inspiration from the nature around us. We’re lucky to live close to two nature reserves – Seaford Head, which is part of the South Downs National Park and the Ouse Valley, including Tide Mills. Every time I do find time to go down there, there is something new to see, it’s a constantly changing landscape.
