About the Book
Rosemoor RHS Garden in North Devon is one of our favourite English Gardens. We experienced the beauty of these large, 65 acre gardens on a rainy day in June. Undeterred by showers, we revelled in the added dimension that sparkling raindrops give to petals and leaves. The air was fresh and, best of all, we had the gardens almost to ourselves. It was like walking in the private gardens of a very large, very well-to-do establishment. But these gardens are public, not private. They are a jewel in the crown of the RHS. Let us share Rosemoor with you through our photographs.

My partner and fellow photographer, David Young, and I live in Canberra, Australia. We have been exploring the world for many years, often to places off the beaten track. We enjoy meeting people, learning about different cultures, experiencing new environments and capturing the essence of people and places through our photography and videography. On our travels, we also enjoy discovering our family history, filming gardens and seeking out wildflowers. David is a horticulturist and has been a radio broadcaster and television presenter. I've spent a lifetime in education and enjoy my voluntary mentoring role with university students and researchers.
