While growing up, my holidays and summers were filled with walks around the countryside. I gathered leaves and seed pods, collected rocks, drew flowers, took pictures of trees and clouds with my first camera, made inventories of my treasures, recorded my journeys across the fields, along the river, and beyond the hills. I spent a lot of time dreaming in my secret places.
Now my garden is my haven – a protected place where I feel connected to memories and rituals marking the passage of time – a source of inspiration.
