About me

I live in a semi in the Midlands. The garden is a good size with two mature trees and some shrubs and bushes. I have to grow summer flowers in tubs as my tortoise thinks bedding plants are dinner!
My favourite plants are climbers, I love my honeysuckle and clematis. I also have a climbing fuschia but it's a late flowering variety.
The garden is really bird friendly with several feeders and nesting boxes. Unfortunately the blue tits decided not to nest this year, perhaps because they lost all 12 chicks in the heat last June.
Hope the weather is good to everyone this summer!
