My favourite painting Lady Caroline Percy • Ancient Rome: Agrippina Landing with the Ashes of Germanicus by Turner

The stork cometh • A visiting stork causes great excitement, but no babies, and a cold spring holds the farm back

The impossible made possible • Kathryn Bradley-Hole anticipates a confident return to form at Chelsea, with mouth-watering designs for productive gardens, aromatic Mediterranean planting and even a reinterpretation of the rock garden

Time to sit and stare • The West Sussex home of Harriet Anstruther and Henry BourneNon Morris discovers a garden that has been brilliantly designed to make you want to stop and simply enjoy its loveliness

Take a bough • Treehouses, seats and swings to while away summer days, selected by Amelia Thorpe

Delightful delphiniums • We may not all be able to grow show quality delphiniums, but even in ordinary gardens these statuesque plants still turn heads, says John Hoyland

Let’s celebrate gardening

Baronial dreams • Castle Drogo, Devon, part I A property of the National TrustIn the first of two articles, Clive Aslet reveals how a fascination with ancestry encouraged a wealthy Edwardian businessman to enlist the help of Sir Edwin Lutyens to build a new castle

Native breeds Hackney

Here’s looking at you, kid • What pygmy goats lack in size they more than make up for in personality, says Julie Harding, who meets the owners who have fallen for their charms

When I am feeling blue • With a cobalt cap, white cheeks and tiny wings, the blue tit might be a picture of songbird sweetness, but its morals leave much to be desired, says Stephen Moss

Gnome alone • Vertically challenged, bearded and rosy-cheeked, cheerful gnomes might make for unlikely cover stars, but–says Ben Lerwill–they’ve long graced books, album covers and even The Queen’s private garden

Head over heels • As the season of weddings and Royal Ascot arrives, Hetty Lintell suggests supporting a British designer with an eye-catching piece of millinery

Will the hot tub lose its fizz? • Why the outdoor bath offers a more discreet, less expensive alternative

Soak in style • Freestanding baths for making a statement, selected byAmelia Thorpe

Lessons from the past • On June 13 at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, two leading interior designers will share the enduring design principles that never go out of date

Many rooms with a view • Three homes have received new life thanks to some sensitive and extensive renovations

The best rooms in the house • Spring has sprung, the sun has come and now is the time to make the most of it

Homing instincts • Before artist and gardener Cedric Morris died, he had wisely appointed a plant executor to ensure his precious plants went to good homes. Without such foresight, many gems might have been lost, says Christopher Woodward, director of the Garden Museum in Lambeth
