About my garden: Sixteen years ago we moved to our present house and the garden was a green field site. The front of the house is east-facing and behind us is farmland, with a view of the Sugarloaf in the distance. The site is elevated and has very sandy soil, but I continue to fight the good fight. The garden is a mixture of trees and shrubs. As time and the elements take their toll, I am surrendering to my love of perennials. There is also an area for fruit trees and summer vegetables. Our home, being close to the sea and 2 miles from the woods and mountains, there's only one way I will leave!!!
More about me: I get so much pleasure from the garden. I enjoy everything about it, not only the colours and textures, but the sounds of the birds, the bees and insects. I live in a rural area, about 2 milies from the sea. I have come late to the physical work of gardening. Up until now I just read the books and decided on content and design. The hard graft was put in by my husband (it could not have been in more capable hands!). Our garden is frequented by our grandchildren, whom we love, our dog that we trust and rabbits. Well rabbits...lovely little critters in someone else's garden. I am looking forward to being in contact with other members. I've had my eye on you all for quite some time!
