A Fuchsia garden

Stunning weather in Gullane today and we are off on holiday soon…definitely garden season…gardening is a passion that has always been inside – for many years deep inside me, because I was bought up in a flat in Central London and then moved to a similar, top floor flat, in Glasgow…

I am spoilt because my husband is an able landscaper and kind of likes to do things his way (I think the saying is ‘Doug’s way or the Highway’) so I have been left, even when we bought our first house together, feeding my passion by ‘reading gardening books’ and ‘imagining myself gardening’…

However, I am now, by very good fortune, able to write about gardens for my work. We have just had a feature published, again in House Beautiful magazine, in the current issue, August 2014, about a beautiful garden in Dundee. The owners bought a stunning modernist home, at an early stage from a developer, and have really put their personal stamp on it.

With the help of brilliant garden designer, Tracy McQue they have created a garden that is a work of art, mouth watering colours, fun shapes and soft, practical textiles for outside, all combine to make an outside space that they use and enjoy all year round.
