About me

I love gardening and the outdoors. Beyond my gardens we have a 2 acre woodland made up of mainly native trees plus a few special ornamental ones. Over the last few years I've been planting lots of snowdrops and bluebells in the woodland. We also have a large wildlife pond. We have a stream than runs along the perimeter of the garden and the emphasis is on the wildlife which we love to encourage by creating a suitable environment. Seems to be working as we've had Tawny Owls nesting for the last few years and the kingfisher is a regular visitor. I spend as much time as possible in my greenhouse and garden where I am at my happiest. Always lots of jobs to do here!
