I have just been very lucky to have been away on holiday in Laos and Thailand for a couple of weeks and will post about all that soon however I thought I should post about my rather bedraggled looking garden!

Its funny going away as in 2 weeks you can notice a lot of changes and 2 weeks has made a massive difference from a fabulous looking exotic jungle looking at its best to a rather autumnal knocked about mess that is a little past its peak. There are still lots of things looking magnificent however 2 weeks of not dead heading and things are all raggedy.

Its been such an odd year for some things being rubbish (Salvias) and others growing like my Miscanthus giganteus (which is never supposed to flower) is flowering!

Nasturshums romp, and everything else falls over...I thought this scene was a little Ankorian

 One salvia is flowering! Im still in a huff with them though...

My painting in the Dulwich Picture Gallery

I am very excited to have had one of my pictures accepted into the current exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. Hurrah! I have now been painting for about 7 years, and in the last year or so got much more into a flow and am really pleased with the paintings I have done over the last year or so.

The painting at Dulwich is called 'Idol Worship' 

Other recent pictures include Mr Walrus, a portrait of the Hornimans Walrus

and one of a series of my plant show paintings

and my Balinese obsession also lives in painting, this is one of the Ranga Dance

And finally another Museum painting...

I hope you like them! all are available, contact me for more information
