Welcome to my blog…

I write about my garden. What’s in it, what the plans are, what we’re doing. I’m not a professional gardener, but I am interested and I do enjoy working on it and being in it.

I try to make it interesting, useful and maybe amusing.

I hope you enjoy it. If you do, you can follow the blog by clicking on the follow button on the right 🙂

Also on this site (see the Menu across the top) you can find my occasional contributions to ‘6-on-Saturday‘ – 6 things from my garden on a given Saturday.  They might be plants, tools, views, creatures, anything really.  It’s part of a theme started here https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/2018/05/05/six-on-saturday-05-05-2018/  and anyone can join in and share their garden.

I also have a category called Core Edge Journal which is where I write nature and countryside notes from my walks and time in the garden and the surrounding countryside.

Comments always welcome!

You can also follow me on Twitter @optimistgarden where I tweet about a whole range of things 🙂
