Gardening for me has become an important distraction from chronic pain (after a stroke) but I must pace myself or I risk the pain getting worse. We all have obstacles: whether physical problems or lack of time or lack of money or lack of space or lack of sun but I hope we can enjoy growing something, even 1 pot from seed.
I'm gardening on a budget so mostly growing from seed or enjoying what self-seeds. Lately I've struggled identifying seedlings so that is my goal to identify and document every seedling I come across. I don't have any horticultural training but my background is IT and I like things precise and organized so I am learning what these plants are so I can document them.
I love cats and have four, Polly Pocket, who I took in as a stray, Socks (pictured below), who I got from the RSPCA, Scarecrow, a stray I took in (below Victor) and Victor (below Socks) who has come from a neighbour and decided he wants to stay with us instead. More about my cats and the other cats that visit the garden are at the Neighbourhood Cats page.
and I have some other animal friends in the garden as well
