Will’s wall

Week 42 – Will’s wall

A fine mix of evergreens planted earlier in the year are doing very well in Will’s wall outside his kitchen window. Personally I like to include a vivid splash of colour in my planting schemes, but equally there is something very calming about a sea of green. Staring at it the other day I realised that leaf shape is just as important as colour and flowers when it comes to the entertainment value of a living wall.

Positively Lyme Regis

Week 40 – Positively Lyme Regis

According to a new study published in Psychological Science (a journal of the Association for Psychological Science) “positive mood has been found to enhance creative problem solving and flexible yet careful thinking”. I personally find that positivity is the main driving force behind my creativity. However, maintaining a positive state of mind is not always that simply whilst navigating the choppy waters of modern life. Time spent near the coast (often with my family) is one of the ways I feed my positivity and thus my creativity. Pembrokeshire, Norfolk, Dorset and Devon are my usual go-to destinations. This week it is Lyme Regis in Dorset. What a fabulous seafront and what a fantastic bit of late autumnal sunshine we had.

A bit on the side anyone?

Week 39 – A bit on the side anyone?

A big thank you to Alex Mitchell for the great article she’s written in the Homes & Property section of the Evening Standard. According to Alex I’m the ‘go-to-man’ when it comes to transforming tight London spaces (with green walls). Honestly, I’m flattered.

One small step. One giant leap.
