I put quite a few trees in last autumn. A lot of silver birch and a couple of native trees – just generally doing gardening putting plants in and hedges in. It takes quite a lot of time and I love it.
I love decorating my home. I’m a gardener too so that’s usually something I have to play catch up with.
I don’t hold that everybody has to love fashion. Some people like gardening.
Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh how beautiful’ and sitting in the shade.
A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions and the plant is to a landscape artist not only a plant – rare unusual ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a color a shape a volume or an arabesque in itself.
A good garden may have some weeds.
Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too.
We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden he was put there so that he should work which proves that man was not born to rest.
Trees and plants always look like the people they live with somehow.
I don’t like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It’s just the wilderness instinct in me I guess.
