I've been taking photographs of plants in and around my garden since I bought my first digital camera in 2001 (three years after I has started this website). So whilst wondering where to keep the pictures in the days before Flickr and cloud storage, I thought I'd create a little database of them on my UK Gardening website, and I've been taking photos and adding them to my site ever since.

Below is a very small, random selection of photographs I have taken over the last 21 years. To see a larger version of a photograph, click the image. You'll then be able to scroll left and right through the current selection.

Belted hoverfly Volucella zonaria. One of the largest flies of Britain. It mimics a hornet or wasp, but is harmless to humans. The adults are great polinators and their larvae are believed to eat wasp grubs.
