I started this blog in 2008 to record how my garden developed, it quickly became a gardening journal and I have loved it every since. I am passionate about horticulture despite working in higher education administration. I have started to re-engage with other hobbies: knitting, sewing and drawing so sometimes the posts on here may be less garden focussed. However, as I don't want to bore you with my new crochet obsession I have started another blog for this and if you are interested there is a link further down this side bar.
I love reading your comments and I do hope you enjoy the blog.

I haven’t been in the garden this weekend apart from to take some photographs. Sunday has been wet and windy thanks to residue of hurricane Bertha once she had blasted across the Atlantic. We have had very heavy downpours and … Continue reading
It seems like forever since I wrote the last End of Month View so much so that I couldn’t remember what photos I usually included so this post might be a little hit and miss. I’ll start with my favourite … Continue reading
