024Autumn time is the erotic time, the time to be dominated by big lary plants with attitude. These are the Christian Greys of the garden world . The plants that will always say yes and yes again and make mine a handcuff and silken scarf and be damned.

083057Grasses first : architectural and arch with it

. Giving fabulous structure , colour , muscle and brawn. They are the bouncers of the garden, standing up straight  in the doorways fiddling with their mikes and manhoods. Twitching in the wind ,and giving the shoulder and the eye to the plants around them. Our garden is 25% grasses of all kinds which are woven through the plantings . As you walk through the borders it is the grasses that give you that shelter and which block the sun from time to time. They can also be  brash with candy bar colours in their leaves. Sometimes they are like  Brighton rock laced with pinks, oranges and reds , and sometimes just burning crimson and vermillion . Their seed heads can also be subtly or not so subtly coloured: beaded jewels with the early morning mists and dew or heavy with embroidery thread tassels. Some of them are woolly and crinkled like chips , some of them are smooth and silken. This is the way where madness lies as you try and get them together en masse. Did I tell you about the romance and the softness too ? the way they lend a wispy texture to the garden that catches the light and shimmers it through the borders. Lucky us , when the bouncers show their hearts of  gold under their butch veneer.

034The Muscle : Big Plants , Big Egos

By autumn time we can clearly see the plants that have ambition to be the biggest and the most glam with it. They literally put on all their jewellery and bling and pimp it up rotten. They are shamelessly wanton and wanting attention. And they can do it by height and bravado and staking their claim to be the first into the nightclub of autumn.They even have tattoos and piercings ! My Big fat gypsy plants. They slip their clothes on and off with languid ease and shameless lewd loveliness.And take colour as their watchword.

negligee and slipper , corset and bodice : our plants will work their way through their wardrobe as the season progresses, shedding and shucking them off as the mood suits.Their jackets are lined with shocking colours to make you blink and their buttons and fastenings provocatively taut. Wardrobe malfunction is their trick.

012Are they coy and winning or buxom and blousy ?

101Where is the lustre of youth and vigour ? where are the dimpled thighs of the Moulin rouge muffin tops ? the glistening sequined décolleté and the supermodels of shameless glam ?

090are they in their dressing rooms painting their nails and eating jelly babies, pulling on their rubber suits and skin tight stockings ? are they on the couch with their casting directors ?

Beauty and beast we love them all !

Curly,Wills and Curly’s Brother

at all lost or wandering ! they were well behaved in their assigned field (for once)and very very pleased to see me . There are some new kids getting friendly (and friendly, Paul, means they dont get eaten right ?!) let me introduce you to the fearless and patchworked Mask . A gauky lamb from this year  with very long legs and the kind of sheep that would be a super model if she could. Then there is the cutest chunky Chocolat (said in french accent) and I am talking 75% colour of chocolate … she has the sharpest little hooves imaginable and gives you a very good hoof massage on the back ! the old faithfuls ,Birsay (tail wags like dog when stroked)and Barra (paws at you with her hoof for attention) are still wonderful and prima donnas to a tee  .. in fact the whole troupe will be featured in the very rare and hitherto unseen and untried art cinema for sheep entitled  “When Sheep Dare” .. which is to be filmed by Victoria on her forthcoming visit.watch this space ! It is incredible the social circles in which one moves when in deepest darkest sussex.
