About me

I am retired from Physiotherapy living with my husband.Have two grown up sons and two granddaughters.Have gardened all my adult life.Now have a garden which needs constant attention but delivers in abundance! Roses probably are my favourite plant.Have many shrubs which need regular shaping.Most days are spent in the garden.Dread the long winter when this isn't possible!
November to February are the worst months when the garden dies recent times I've taken up landscape water colour painting again during this time of year....the passion isn't as great as for gardening though.
