During the summer I was working hard at The Flower Garden at Stokesay Court, which had rented an old Victorian walled garden to grow flowers for florists and events such as weddings and funerals. I wanted to document as much of the work as possible and was fascinated to see the old gardener's space repurposed on cutting days as a cool place to store the flowers prior to delivery.

I settled myself in the corner and using only natural light, captured a painterly quality to the work, while the tools on the far wall serve as a reminder that this is, indeed, a working garden.
