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.
