Of all the places to for a mooch about, a cactus nursery has to be one of the nicest choices out there. What better way is there to spend a weekend afternoon than surrounded by curtains of luscious foliage, tables and tables covered in stout green plants and with a couple of charming aficionados to teach you everything they know about botany? India Hobson’s series taken inside Abbey Brook Cactus Nursery is a testament to the fact; she documents the peculiar Englishness of the greenhouse garden with a gentle watchfulness, shooting the plants as though they were tiny green spiky aliens to be observed curiously through her lens. This is just one of a bunch of wonderful projects on her site, from shoots for The Garden Edit and Kinfolk, proving that we’re not the only ones to admire her talent.
