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.

Yesterday started overcast which came as rather a surprise given the wonderful sunshine we have had this week. We have lost faith in the local weather forecast which seems to bare no resemblance to the actual temperatures so it’s now … Continue reading
