About

Sixty-something. Mother of 3, Grandmother of 4. I like gardening, photography, writing, reading and life in general. I’m also into genealogy and scrapbooking.

I was born in London and moved to the USA in 1973. I still miss home but will probably never go back. Past interests include dancing, theater, fencing, painting and floral arranging.

  1. Thanks for ‘liking’ my ‘Lambing season’. As a result I’ve enjoyed my trip round your site and have enjoyed very much what I’ve seen. I’ll be back!

  2. I bet crumpets to teacakes you were (like me) glued to the TV to watch the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. We all thought the Queen was absolutely magnificent. Oh yes – Kate wasn’t so bad either. Viriginia

    • You’re absolutely right! I watched some of the celebrations on the BBC website and the concert on tv, although they did cut out quite a bit of the concert (I was looking forward to seeing Shirley Bassey and some of the classical music pieces!)

    • Thank you, Belmont Rooster, for your generous comment. Although I was nominated for one or two awards earlier in my blogging career I find that I’m happier just writing for the fun of it now, but many thanks anyway for the very kind thought. I’ve enjoyed reading about your preparations for winter.

  4. This is a beautiful blog. I love the photographs of all the nature! People don’t pay enough attention to nature, I think. Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  5. Hi there,
    Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my little corner of the blogosphere and the follow, your support is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to seeing more from you 🙂

    Have a great day,

    Eddie

  6. So glad I have found your blog. I am really enjoying your photography, your posts and your loves in general. Thank you, from a like minded blogger in Australia.

    • I have become used to living in the Chicago area now. We’ve been here for more than 40 years but I still think of England as home, even though I’ve never been back there. I was always afraid to go back in case I found it even harder to leave a second time, especially while my parents were still living there.
