Where I live: Dublin (mostly Bergerac), Co Dublin Member since: October 2009 Last here: 1565 days 21 hours ago
About my garden: I have a long, narrow garden along one side of the house. It's 50 metres long, but varies in width from about 8 metres down to less than 4 metres. It was a waste-land when I took it over in 2007, but I have tamed it, in four sections. However, it's not exactly as intended. Part of the reason is the decision to grow two parcels of wild flowers, which don't follow the normal rules of gardening, if such exist!
More about me: I live mostly, in retirement, in a hovel in south west France, in a town called Bergerac in the Dordogne departement.
