Gardens of Delight

I'm preparing for a new exhibition as part of the E17 Art Trail, called Gardens of Delight. It is a celebration of the garden in Waltham Forest and I am inviting anyone in Waltham Forest to send in photographs of a part of their garden, from window box to allotment. Some thing that inspires you or brings delight, from flowers to birds and wildlife.

Gardens are one of the most important areas for wildlife, particularly in cities and there is growing concern that more and more gardens are being lost to building developments. There is a new manifesto for gardens supported by many organizations, called Let our gardens live.

I personally couldn't live long in London without a garden, it's something about touching another space, surrounded by breathing living plants and wildlife, whilst in the middle of concrete and brick.
