Where I live: Cork, Co Cork Member since: July 2010 Last here: 400 days 13 hours ago
About my garden: This ½ acre has been my garden since 1975. Over the years the garden has taken shape. It's mainly trees, shrubs and flower beds. 3 years ago we put in a patio - I waited a long time for this ;) This year we went back to growing our own vegetables as my husband is retired. We planted Duke of York and British Queen pops they were lovely. We also have lettuce, tomatoes & lots of herbs.
More about me: Hi, my name is Dympna, married with 5 grown up children,three Grandaughters and a dog. Gardening is my No1 hobby, it has been a passion of mine since a child. If I could I'd spend most of my day working in the garden.
