Although still working hard on new book manuscript, I am soon back to writing gardening columns and getting back into the flow once again. Chelsea Flower Show is on the horizon where we will be photographing the best and most expensive of the flower world, but I just wanted to post some pictures for our ex-pat brigade who have mentioned typical English countryside 'weeds'. Here we have Valerian and Alcanet (won't bother you with the Latin terms),which are in full flower at the moment. Shame they all have to be pulled up soon to make space for the plants ready to be popped in.
