This blog was started in 2008 as a diary of the development of my garden, my love of plants, the gardens I visit and the knowledge I gain. It has also proved a wonderful tool for meeting like minded people through and sharing my passion.
In the last few years I have joined a number of local horticultural groups and this has opened more doors for me to gain more experience – after all as they say you never stop learning in horticulture. I have also started to explore other interests especially embroidery and these sometimes feature on the blog. I did have two blogs but it seemed to me that I could either actively persue my interests or I could blog about them – doing both was becoming challenging especially as I have a full time job in higher education administration.
One of the regular features of the blog is the End of Month View in which I focus on a particular part or parts of the garden through the year. Other bloggers are welcome to participate and there are close to 20 from across the world who take part in this meme each month.
So I hope you enjoy the blog. Please feel free to leave comments as its always lovely to get feedback. I try to respond to comments as much as possible but sometimes life and work get in the way but I will do my best to respond especially if your comment is a question.
