About me

I retired a few years ago. Have one daughter and grandson who live close by. I love my garden - only small courtyard type at the back with lawn to the side (which is so small we use a hand mower, my husband will mow it but never edges it, leaves that to me!) good exercise though. I love the Spring when everything starts budding. We keep ducks just for the pleasure as they are comical, and chickens (only 6 hens and a bantam cockeriel) for the eggs. At the moment my project is trying to get lots of different types of plants that will happily live in pots to make an informal screen. Learning it looks best if the pots are staggered in 2/3 rows rather than one straight row. Trial and error - and long way to go yet!.
