About me

We bought a brand new house three years ago, nothing was in the back garden except six paving slabs. This blank canvas was so daunting - never having a garden before that we had some lawn laid and a bit of a patio and ignored it!

Over the past year however, I've been bit by the gardening bug (OH must have a natually immunity to this bug), and now wish my life away waiting for days off and holidays so I can get out and potter. I love learning about everything and am starting to realise why some plants need sun and some need shade..... Oh and why they tell you the height and spread of a plant.....

So lots of changes to make and more mistakes to learn from. Loving it!!
