I felt pleased when Peter and Barbara Knox-Shaw recently invited me to photograph their garden at Fresh Woods in Elgin for House and Garden magazine. I had photographed the garden twenty-five years earlier and I remembered with joy how Peter’s late mother, Maisey, introduced me to her abundant collection of roses, three species of which were unique to Fresh Woods at the time. Peter and Barbara have expanded the more formal garden into a wilder woodlands area, linked by a simple pathway winding through a small bamboo forest. Fresh Woods is a spirited garden; it embodies the generosity and creativity of Peter and Barbara Knox-Shaw Jac de Villiers FRESH WOODS House & Garden
