Where I live: Killavullen, Mallow, Co Cork Member since: April 2011 Last here: 2387 days ago
About my garden: I've recently resumed gardening after a very long break of allowing my garden to become overgrown. I always loved growing vegetables,but I have'nt been very adventurous. I now have a vegetable garden ( drills) at the back ov our house and I'm re-styructuring the garden at the front of the house. Our house is a bungalow. swe live in a small village and we keep horses, so they, too have grazed the lawn!!! I'm ashamed to say. I've turned a new leaf and have started digging. I plan to have a wide (48ins) border of perennials and maybe ( cottage garden-type) down one side of the lawn. I have a lilac tree in the centre of the lawn and my hyusband has just gotten rid of two over-grown conifers and a dead "red robiin". My vegetable garden soo far consists of potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, carrotts and parsnips that have'nt yet come up. Two strawberry plants and some herbs. I intend growing leeks and some fruit ie., raspberries and blackcurrants.
More about me: I have one daughter. My husbands trains horses on a small scale. I enjoy painting, cooking, gardening and nature. I especially love horses and they are the subjects which I mostly paint along with other animals, birds etc., We live in a little village, nestled at the base of the nagle mountains, with a most magnificent view. The Ross stream passes through our 4 acre holding on its journey from the mountains to meet the river Blackwater on the other side of the villlage.
