In many ways I am completely normal (no sniggering at the back). I am married and have two lovely children. My husband works full time, I stay at home and look after the two afore-mentioned lovely children.
I’m autistic and gardening really helps me to relax as much as I can relax, which isn’t much at all, and the plants don’t need me to have a conversation with them. The more I dig, the happier I am.
I love most sorts of garden, but I’m especially interested in herbs, organic gardening, fruit and veg, edible flowers, cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, self-sufficiency gardening and gardening with children (so they don’t get so bored when I drag them around nurseries and garden centres).
There are lots of other things that keep me sane like hanging out with my dog, running, cooking, and drinking tea.
Our long-term plan is to emigrate to Canada (I am the only one in this house that isn’t a Canadian citizen), buy a little house on a couple of acres of land and become more self-sufficient-er. This will involve lots of digging and probably some ducks and bees. I probably think about this too much and forget to do things like clean.
Please feel welcome to follow my blog if you like the sound of that, and if your blog is similar then let me know so I can follow you too. I am crap at photography so you might just have to squint at my blurry, rubbish photos and imagine how awesome my garden looks.
Endless love to my husband and children for putting up with me.
