Give Weeds a Chance.


I find I feature the humble weed more and more in my work.

 I think its their tenacity I like, definitely the under dog in the garden, they still persist in trying to get themselves noticed!

Their names are charming: Horsetail, Lady’s Bed Straw, Ragged Robin and Shepherd’s Purse to name just a few.


One of my current favourites is Cleavers, or as we called it as kids, Sticky Willy. Great fun to stick on the back of an unaware sibling but also quite beautiful when you take a closer look.
