My favourite painting Miranda Rock • A Still Life of Flowers in an Urn with Two Figures by Giuseppe Recco

’Tis the silly season • More chirping and less tweeting would be bliss in August

A dramatic revival • Hellifield Peel Tower, North Yorkshire The decaying shell of a medieval peel tower has undergone a near miraculous restoration and revival as a family home. Jeremy Musson reports

Native breeds Guernsey

No fin compares to you • From elusive angelsharks to chunky, sprinting shortfin makos and glow-in-the-dark velvet belly lanterns, Helen Scales gets up close and personal with the sharks that swim in British waters

The original poster boy • From the mauve sky of Waterloo Sunset to the pastoral Arcadia of rolling fields in God’s Own Country, Stephen Millership’s evocative travel scenes capture Great Britain’s soul. Andrew Liddle meets the man behind the art

A real fly by night • Once reviled as a creature of doom, the nightjar is an avian miracle that sits silently motionless by day and flies noiselessly at night. No wonder it is so hard to spot, says Ian Morton

The designer’s room • Nels Crosthwaite Eyre employed a dramatic wallpaper to inject pattern, scale and colour into a converted building in north London

Giving it large • Why bold pattern is a magic ingredient in a scheme

Property news

Kings, cricket and villainy • It should come as no surprise that the homes of the ‘Garden of England’ hold such rich histories

I say a little prayer for you • Designed as a miniature replica of the basilica at Lourdes, the seashell- and mosaic-decorated Little Chapel on Guernsey was at risk of collapse until a group of locals stepped in, as Arabella Youens discovers

A shore thing • Guernsey’s 27 beautiful beaches range from secluded coves to expansive sandy bays. Whether you want to sunbathe or raise your pulse with wind-surfing, there’s a beach to suit you, says Antonia Windsor

Island of plenty • From crustaceans, scallops and shellfish to its legendary milk and cream, Guernsey has long been famous for the quality- and abundance-of its produce, reveals Oliver Berry

Cream of the crop • From historic island residences to homes with commanding views, Holly Kirkwood has the pick of the best Guernsey properties for sale

Try something new • Foreign introductions are always tempting to grow- and so often disappoint-but, writes John Hoyland, the Australian baptisia is proving hardy and happy in a range of conditions here and becoming a new garden stalwart

Carry on gardening • Trugs, aprons and caddies for all your gardening essentials, selected by Amelia Thorpe

Here we go round the mulberry tree • Familiar from the famous nursery rhyme, the mulberry tree is so prized for the silkworms that feed on its luscious fruit that, long ago, the Chinese would execute anyone exporting a specimen, reveals Ian...
