The change of the seasons is one of the reasons why I couldn’t live in a warmer country. The delicate way in which spring emerges from the cold clutches of winter to deliver vibrant greens and paper white blossoms, its just incredible, throw in some morning sunshine and you have all the makings of a beautiful shoot. For anyone who hasn’t been, Stowe gardens offer 250 acres of splendor to amble around, you can cover the main features in about an hour at a casual pace if you fancy a weekend jaunt – good scrabble word. Sarah and Andy will be married in a few months and i’ll be there to capture that too, cannot wait. In the meantime feast your eyes on all the fun we had last weekend where I was terrorised by a roguish swan, he had anger in his eyes and fire in his belly – true story.
