garden tales from a Brit at home and abroad
I’m a British landscape historian, now based in Yorkshire, previously having lived and worked in India, France and the US. Having completed a Masters at a London design school, and post-graduate studies in landscape design and history at one of Harvard’s institutes, I research and write on parks and gardens, edit articles for a garden history magazine, do some translation work for a big heritage organisation, lecture and lead guided history walks, and spend as much time as I can visiting interesting landscapes and historical archives.
A splendid fellow blogger at Jean’s Garden was kind enough to choose this as one of her blogs of the month, recommending it “for anyone who likes to think about gardens, their place in human experience, and larger issues of garden and landscape design.”

Oh, and if you’re wondering about the significance of the little animal mask that serves as my avatar, here’s the explanation.
