About me

I've been with Alison exactly 5 years come Halloween night....I know what you're all thinking and yes, she did arrive at that party on a broomstick - the proof is currently sitting in the garden, a photo of which will soon appear on here I'm sure!

We live in Mid Glamorgan, Wales on a corner plot and whilst the garden is not huge, it is a fair size. Ali was the amateur gardener and since we moved into our new home in September of '08, I have been pulled along on her enthusiasm and now I look after the plants I buy and Ali does the veggie side. I am now 'fumbling' my way through decorating the decking with splashes of colour with plants and nice pots - some home made - and it's all a learning curve for us both really. BUT, we are enjoying it immensely and hopefully, you friendly folk can now share the experience and journey with us whilst I pick your brains and share your ideas as well.

Over time, I will introduce you to some of our residents in the garden and those who visit on a daily basis.


I hope to share some nice blogs with you and photo's with the names when I learn them myself.

It's great to be on board!
