About me

After living in Eastern Scotland for 36 years, the last 10 years creating a large rural garden, almost from scratch, we have uprooted ourselves and moved 500 miles south to Dorset. It’s a big new adventure on many fronts with a new build home and accompanying small garden 10m x 11m. We hope to move in Feb 24 and you can follow as I try something completely different, a Mediterranean style courtyard garden with no lawn. I have some great ideas, and can’t wait to get started! Change is good! New year, new home, new garden, new climate and of course, our new Grandaughter.
