Brentford Dock, Prunus cerasifera, Brentford Ait, Kew Bridge and Syon Reach. Recent additions to the Drawing Dark Waters project. (click on Projects menu for full set of images).
Interesting to see where and how your images are used. A new book cover next to the original….taken around 1997. ‘The Devil and Sherlock Holmes’ by David Grann.
An edit of Drawing Dark Waters images – walks along the Thames 2018.
Rev Richard Coles, presenter on BBC Radio Four’s Saturday Live, once described the plastic bags suspended along the roadside on his drive home as looking like “Unfortunate wraiths snagged in trees”. Sadly a common feature along the River Thames. More ‘wildling’ trees along the Thames footpath near Mortlake. A ‘wildling’ Plane tree growing out of the cobbled embankment along the River Thames between Chiswick and Kew.
Nice to have a feature in the spring issue of The English Garden. Juan Carlos Cure’s amazing patio garden in Islington.
The corner of my mum’s plant hospital. Apparently I won the large cactus in the middle at a school summer fair when I was about 8 years old. It was ‘confiscated’ as I didn’t look after it. Monstera deliciosa or cheese plant. London Plane tree – high tide, overlooking Vauxhall Bridge.
Winter trees, Kew Fatsia japonica Winter trees, Kew – Celtis laevigata ‘smallii’

Four new images – 1. Overgrown woodland, Gunnersbury Park 2. Gunnersbury Park – overgrown woodland with fallen trees 3. A bit of three tree weirdness – not sure what the front two are, but the rear is an Elder. According to folklore, if you remove an Elder, you will see the devil. And if you plant one near your house, it will ward the devil off. Get planting folks! 4. As my daughters used to call it….The Scary Tree, Gunnersbury Park. Not sure exactly what type of tree it is. Maybe a corkscrew willow?
