Hello,  my name is Joanna and along with my husband John have been creating our “dream garden” in rural Worcestershire since 2006.     We arrived with our four children and many trailer loads of plants from our previous garden and set to work almost immediately.     The garden was the longed for “blank canvas” – the only drawback being a lack of flowerbeds  and weeds everywhere.

The “family” has grown – the children are growing up; we have four beehives therefore thousands of bees; a cat and two springer spaniels who love to dig,  not always in the right place.

I hope this blog will be a diary of what we have done in the garden.   There will be “before” and “after” photographs and more often than not “halfway through the job before we remembered the camera” photographs!
