The Great Lime Tree. 2014, oil 32 x 37 inches..
This is our back garden in La Bontellerie. There are no boundary lines or markings but it ends where the vineyard begins, which has always been amicably observed by both our neighbour and ourselves. It is dominated by this view of a majestic lime tree of gigantic proportions which never ceases to amaze me with the beauty and precision of its shape. A few years ago it was severely cut back and appeared dead, but wasted no time in re-growing to an even greater splendour of height and girth.
