About me

I live in the "Dark Peak" in N. Derbyshire in an end-of terrace stone cottage with a very small garden. There is a river at the bottom of the front garden, and woods at the back, so I benefit from wonderful wild life.
I like watching things grow, but prefer things which thrive on neglect, like the perennial geraniums and hardy fuschias which are amongst my favourites.
I'm sure if I had someone to do heavy work I would make more of what is a very unusual plot. As it is I 'tickle' it occasionally then sit back and see what happens.
