This blog began as a record of the garden I cultivated from a building site in North Wiltshire for 17 years. I tracked its growth and maturing over the years and at one time believed I could identify every plant in it, because I had planted it. It was a garden that was very much an extension of who I am and the planting reflected my likes and dislikes, the need for a quiet space and for a place to nurture things.
In the autumn of 2012 we finally left Wiltshire and our little suburban garden and moved to a very rural spot on the Herefordshire/Shropshire border where there is space for a larger pond, a vegetable garden and borders to fill with plants for bees and butterflies.
The blog has changed , ebbed and flowed over the years with the passing of time and my ever changing preoccupations, and now with our new location. Do come back to visit often-you will be very welcome.
