Other people's gardens: the cactushouse
This heated and lit greenhouse (at a friend's) is an astonishing mass of happy cacti. Prickles and flowers. Note the watering trays. They need an occasional, proper soak, and nice warm fresh, dry air. The greenhouse even had that slightly arid feel, like th...

Produce at season's collision
This bowl is full of vine leaves, usually a spring treat. The dry weeks, followed by the sudden wet have produced a second flush of new leaves and I am wrapping meats and layering cheese with the wreckage of tearing off tendrils that were about to invade ne...

John Henry's very smart garden
Since I became a student again (at the same time as having a job, which I guess is going to be more common in the future) I've been enjoying the utopian glory of university buildings, in particular the John Henry building, an insane cantilevered learning fa...

I love that building too, partly because it's so silly in places.

other people's gardens : the tiny green car-park yard
This little double-gated car-park garden (I've slipped the camera through one gate to look at the other) is occasionally lit up (as it is here) by a ray of sunlight, but I can't imagine that it sees much sun. Sandwiched between college utility rooms and a d...

the suffering of the overcrowded tomatoes
There's a sequence in Nick Harkaway's Tigerman  where the hero finds himself hacking furiously through a patch of madly overgrown tomatoes of all shapes and sizes, leaving his skin welted and his throat raw from the noxic dust that coats the tomato plants, ...

Scraps from the Savage Garden
I went to see Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A  for my birthday. It was insane. The Exhibition Road Tunnel was first a festival-crowd shuffle, and then closed. Queues at the entrance went round the block. We waited with poor patience ...

Gucci/medicaid mashup bot sends me another reminder
I've been looking for weeks (well, actually a couple of months) at my cervical smear letter. It's never a pleasant experience and this summer has been busy, and complicated. I have a site to close, a site to launch, plus (mumble awkward unmentionable things...

other people's gardens : a heady profusion
I spotted this tangle from afar, over an old wall retaining some exciting modern architecture. What could that exotic creeper be, I thought, with its lovely pink-purple flowers lit up by the summer sun, and those translucent green leaves? Up close it resolv...

other people's gardens : lavender on the battlements
I'm back at 4 Folly Bridge again (home of Goose Castle ) but this time, the evening sun has caught the roof, where a bright green little garden is nestled among the statues, battlements and dramatic chimneypots. It must be vertiginous - the house is at leas...

dead in the dry of summer
It's raining today - not the gloomy month-in-a-day storm predicted by my phlegmatic driving instructor, but still, enough to make being outside cold, damp and disagreeable. But it doesn't seem to be enough to water the plants. I did a quick circuit, head th...

Tropical July
The garden has taken on a tropical aspect. Some of that's down to genuine tropicals like the Lantana and Calla Lily (top right) bought from a pound shop and come up a truly eyebrow-raising colour). Other things, like the Tweedia (centre right) and Myrtle (c...
