This colourful and very surreal picture of a walled garden is a dazzling composition in which various elements challenge credibility, not least the astonishingly healthy crop of vegetables alongside well-timed perfect tulips and daffodils, and all in very late spring when the cherry trees are in blossom. But somehow these idealised elements coalesce in a garden of nostalgia tended by a 1960s family who look impossibly happy.
