I was interviewed a few weeks ago about my garden and my photography... here's the online version of yesterday's article in The Sunday Herald.

You’ve got to read this and see what all this ‘bee happy’ excitement is about! But before you do – have you ever wanted to stroke a big fluffy bumble bee? Have you ever picked one up and stroked it?

When I was younger I’d run a mile in the other direction from a bee. But once I had my own kids I had to overcome my fear of anything that buzzes. Nowadays I photograph bees – and get the odd sting. I love bees and photography changed my relationship with bees forever.

Every year I have at least 1 wild nest in the garden. You’ll usually find me sitting nearby with a cup of coffee listening to them hum and watching them go in and out of the hive entrance. But this weekend I was very Bee Happy as I had the opportunity of a lifetime!

Read the rest on the blog!

Garden Photography

You can catch up with me on BBC2 Scotland this Thursday evening at 7.00 pm (sky channel 990) or nationally across the rest of the UK on Sunday morning or on Iplayer. I'll be talking about garden photography and how using a camera is so useful in many different ways for gardeners.

Just a pretty little shy viola flower!

Spring colour in the garden this weekend! Fragrant and edible viola flowers ~ Viola cornuta Sorbet Pink Wing.

It's a perennial pansy that's really suitable for cold Scottish gardens like mine!
