About me

I am 61 years old and love gardening. Because of an illness causing me a lot of pain, I cannot garden like I used to and it causes me much frustration. Also because of our changing weather patterns, I have battled with my love of cottage garden flowers, but eventually I realised that I would just go with Mother Nature and grow what she lets me. I have found that forget-me-nots, wallflowers, aqualegia, foxgloves, honeysuckle, hollyhocks (not the lovely double blooms that I used to be able to grow) Bouncing Bet, lavender, a small blue campanula all do very well and propogate themselves. But then that list is not bad and the garden is filled with pretty flowers in the spring and summer. Gets a bit like a desert in the summer but it is amazing how it all comes back in the spring.
