Brenda's Profile

Where I live: Swords, Co Dublin Member since: June 2008 Last here: 2173 days 8 hours ago
About my garden: As I said all my plants are in pots but I have quite a range of things including herbs and strawberries. I bought a David Austen "Graham Thomas" yellow rose last year and more lat week. Cant resist roses!We do feed the birds--an army of the greedy little blighters!! They recently were doing a survey of sparrows-where are they? In my flipping garden getting fat! I will tackle the chaos when the boxer has moved-- I love her dearly but she is not a gardeners best friend.
More about me: I am a widow and worked fulltime in the health service u til July 2011 when I had to retire as I had reached that age although I dont feel it! HSE rules ! I have been gardening since I helped my Dad on his allotment in Manchester as a small child. I came to Ireland when I married in 1970 and have been gardening ever since. At the moment I am ina rented house but I brought a lot of my garden with me in pots. I have not been active on the site of late due to the pressure of work before I retired and being throroughly fed up about having to. Hopefully the Spring will put a spring in my step. I do have lots of bulbs in tubs and troughs to put about in the garden when they are ready. My daughter is now married and they have a boxer dog who is adorable but the garden i wrecked! They hope to move to a place of their own soon.
