Crathes Secrets Folio 1 - Crathes Garden Secret

This collection is inspired by the magical estate of Crathes which nestles on Royal Deeside in Scotland. It is the kind of miniature realm that I imagine will be found in my fantasy land of Morvegan.

This fairytale castle has a magnificent riot of turrets, corbels and string courses while the grounds have an abundance of secret follies, gardens and woods with hidden statues, ponds and fountains.

Crathes Garden Secret

This work won first prize in The National Trust for Scotland Art Competition.

The scene is set in the walled garden against the backdrop of the castle where we come across the castles best kept secret - that the fountain cherubs come to life at certain times and play hide and seek in their own enchanted world when nobody is looking.

Nights Garden Dream

At Moonlights fairy hour
In the gardens secret corner
One by one the cherubs arrive
And chase through the dancing grass.

The Time of Magic at the Door

Moonbeams circle round.
The gifted tongue of the golden cockerel
Sings them on their way.
