Tulips have always been a favorite. So photogenic, elegant, and with a color palette ranging from the palest pastels to fizzing oranges and reds. The lower parterre at Broughton Grange by Tom Stuart-Smith is seriously spectacular in Spring(photo on the left). Get planting!

A favorite from way back at Pettifers – the way the pink roses frame the view is pretty cool, it gives it a ‘secret garden’ feel.

Probably my most published image and an all-time favorite. The dawn light on poppies and alliums was especially magical at Pettifers that morning!
