I have developed a new sense of interest in my garden flowers and vegetables. Most of the small flowers are in pots. I have always enjoyed cottage gardens and the rambling nature of them – I have tried to create that sense of randomness. I don’t know the names of all the flowers but love the pansies, geraniums, seaside daisies, succulents and the jade bush. I am using my garden in a new painting – to me the flowers give me pleasure and I want that feeling to be transported into my painting.
