New Life

Whilst manning at Esotera I’ve been watching a pigeon nesting.  Visitors can’t believe it at such a late time of year.  Well, she’s had babies!  It’s providing additional interest for visitors to Esotera!  Meanwhile, new life is sprouting through my installation – grass growing rapidly after all the rain and mushrooms are finding it a perfect haven.   Nature is once again doing its magic and I’m loving the enhancement.  Here’s to our final day – let’s hope the sun shines for us all!

Esotera featured in Country Living – May ’13

A friend pointed out this wonderful 5-page article featuring Esotera in Country Living (May ’13).  It shows the garden I’ve been allotted in full bloom and as I’ve only seen the garden in winter, it has got me even more excited about the prospect of making some work here, amongst the elegant alliums and plum-coloured papavas.  The article focuses on the creative collaboration between Esotera’s lovely owners Andrew and Shirley Harvey, their ingenious transformation of a field, imaginative use of reclaimed items and sensitivity to wildlife.  And we are mentioned at the end!
