Gardens and gardening have been a life-long interest, and we have visited and photographed gardens and plants for many years. We travel widely, and have pictures from Inverewe in north-west Scotland to Tresco Abbey Gardens in the Isles of Scilly. We have ready access to many gardens and plant collections.

Rudbeckia fulgida  var. sullivantii, ‘Goldsturm’, Harlow Carr gardens, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, August. Popularly known as ‘Black-eyed-Susan’, this perennial in the daisy family is a native of eastern USA.  The variety ‘Goldsturm’ has received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.

Tropaeolum speciosum, photographers’ garden, North Yorkshire, July.  This slender perennial climber is a riot of scarlet flowers in late summer and early autumn, followed by blue fruits. A native of Chile, its English names include, ‘Flame Flower’, ‘Flame Creeper’, and,  indicating its family ties with the common garden nasturtium, ‘Flame Nasturtium’.

Herbaceous border at Inverewe gardens, north-west Scotland, July.  In 1862 Osgood Mackenzie began to create a garden on 62 acres of rocky ground beside the sea near Gairloch.  Windbreaks were planted to combat gales sweeping onto the coast.  With a mild Gulf Stream climate and high rainfall, the gardens, owned by the National Trust for Scotland, are home to many exotic trees and shrubs.
