About me

We live in north Kent .Our garden was a field when we bought the cottage 7 years ago . It is 90ft long and about 50ft wide . After a great deal of planning, It now has a winding stone path 3 arches a small pond,a greenhouse and a garden room part of which I use as a studio for wayercolour painting . Guess my favourite subject? Oh I do have a small vegie patch; but its mostly island beds... no straight lines. It is the only place I can really relax.The majority of the flowers are grown from seed but I love cuttings from friends and family. I belong to a local garden club and exhibit at their seasonal shows. Have opened the garden for Garden Safaris several times but taking a break this year.
We moved from Kent to Ayrshire June 2016. I am recovering from long illness which is why I have been quiet on GOY... BUT we have a new garden which I am enjoying a lot.
Having had 3 lots of major surgery. I'm nearly back to normal now and feeling very lucky to have survived it all. We have our new garden to enjoy and SO looking forward to spring and getting outside more. The weather here has not been too bad with only one snow shower and a few frosty mornings.
