I live with my husband & 2 cats in North Dorset & we have a long garden with a bit more at the front of the house. I am the gardener while my husband does the lawn mowing & barbecuing! He's also quite good at mistaking my plants for weeds when clipping...but that's another story!
Our soil is clay...a thick,deep,& unyielding potter's favourite that I've had to learn which plants will flourish & which I'm wasting my time with.
I work long hours & care for my mother but to come home to a garden full of flowers, with a welcoming moggy lying in the shade is the best thing,
My gardening knowledge is limited & I can't always tell people the names of my flowers but as most of our friends arn't Alan Titchmarshes I can usually make them up & they're none the wiser!
