I am in my early sixties and having been made redundant after a career in education, find myself retired and living with my husband in the Algarve.We bought a just built house here with an undeveloped garden and this blog is the story of our transition to a different way of life and the development of a garden from scratch. Lots of people have helped me along the way, neighbours, friends, both face to face and virtual and I am very grateful to them all.
I have two grown up children, still in London. I am looking forward to combining two of my hobbies in this blog, gardening and writing. I hope you enjoy my blog.
This blog is dedicated to Doris, a wonderful friend of mine who is no longer here, and without whom, none of this would have happened.
