About me

Hi, my husband and I moved to Cyprus six and a half years ago and we live in a small village near Polis. We have two rescue dogs, Barny & Paddy, and a canary, Chaz. Moving to Cyprus was one of the best things we ever did and we have had a blissful time creating our new Mediterranean garden from scratch, learning about all the new plants we can grow in a warm climate. Our current garden is just over five years old and you can see how mature everything is already. My husband had a very busy job in the UK, but now that he has retired, he spends his days tending our garden and in particular a small veggie patch. Although he has never grown vegetables before, we enjoy some really lovely veg and currently we have growing spuds, sprouts, parsnips, swede, cabbages and peppers. We also have a small orchard growing oranges, lemons, applies, pears, nectarines, avocado, olives and grapefruit. We harvest our olives each year to produce our own olive oil. We have been married for 36 years and never been happier!
