A double page spread for 'In my Garden...'. Many of my friends grow their own produce on allotments, the last squares of true common ground left in Britain. Often well treasured and protected, they provide oddly shaped vegetables and damp earthed serenity for their owners. This image is inspired by them and the urban fox that sun-bathes on the roof of the shed at the bottom of my garden.
