About me

Hi everyone.This is my first visit to this site,but I have been reading all the comments with interest.I am a Yorkshire "lass",but now retired,so spend many happy hours in my garden.It is quite small,but I pack plenty in it,with the addition of many pots. I enjoy everything from seed sowing to weeding,and especially propagating cuttings.My Hubby isn't as keen as me,but does his bit,by cutting the lawn and doing all the heavier jobs..We enjoy walking,eating out,and holidays,and spending time with our young grandson.
