The challenge set by a mother, artist, photographer and experimental gardener.
Following the gardening year, with a middle aged mum, who has discovered the delights of growing plants from seed, of nurturing colour and texture and creating a beautiful environment for her son and husband.
It's all one big experiment - what will grow? what will the baby bunnies eat? Will the sheep in the field next door escape and raid the borders (I hope not!)
A biologist by training with a love of mindfulness, colour and nature. The escape from the London traffic in 1997 eventually led to living the Good Life and acting out the pages of Country Living in a cottage a few miles from the Northumberland National Park at the base of the Cheviot Hills.
The hills are a mile in one direction, the sea is a short drive away. We have Castles and Curlews.
Its a wonderful life.
