About me

Hi all,
I live in a very suburban part of beautiful Scotland. Right now that means I have a plentiful supply of natural rainwater, combined with a summer rise in temperature which is resulting in my newly designed garden growing like a rainforrest. I was brought up in an apartment block in a large town and knew nothing of gardening until I met my husband. We have now redeveloped the garden of our suburban semi. The hard landscaping was finished at the end of May 09 and what you see is our first attempts at planting it out.
The little greenhouse is a new resource for us too so it really expands our horizons and might mean some of the more tender things will survive our miserable winters.
I am absoulutely loving it - I love flowers, I love growing things and I love to sit back and relax in our little space outdoors.
