About me

I am a keen gardener able to indulge since retiring. We moved here in January 2005 and feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful, tranquil place. Our garden is two-thirds of an acre and takes a lot of upkeep! We have a natural stream running through it. The soil is good but has a quantity of large chunks of rock in it which I hit when I dig! The garden is not low maintenance, and I'm a plantaholic. I love flowers, perennials especially, as well as shrubs and Clematis. I have quite a collection of hardy geraniums, too. I do make good use of my greenhouses for seeds and plug plants to fill gaps. I'm always up for new projects in the garden as you will see from my photos. I don't grow vegetables except tomatoes and cucumbers in the greenhouse. Oh, and I love orchids, too - but indoors. We used to open for the NGS, but sadly I can no longer do it...
