Blog Of The Month - April
As my regular readers already know, this year, I've decided to dedicate one post each month to a Blog Of The Month post where I feature a blog I'm enjoying reading. Some blogs will be new to me, others may be blogs I've been reading for a while. I hope that by doing this, I can introduce some of my readers to other, interesting blogs, though I know that some of you will already read the blogs I feature.
I've chosen A Rich Tapestry as the blog of the month for April. Linda and her husband live in Yorkshire, the county they moved to when they retired, where they have a garden and an allotment. Linda's husband is the veggie grower whereas Linda chooses and looks after the flowering plants. As well as their English garden, they also have a garden in Italy, as part of their time is spent there.
Linda has a keen interest in photography and enjoys taking photos of the many places she visits. Just recently, she went back to her home county of Berkshire and introduced us to Caversham Court, a public garden on the north bank of the River Thames. As well as trips to gardens, Linda enjoys spending time walking in the countryside where she always finds lots of interesting things to show us.
Since retiring, Linda has been working on her family tree, and has a line going back to the 1600's. She has some wonderful treasures which have been passed down through the family to her.
So you see, this blog really does have something for everyone. I intend to read through from the very beginning when I find a bit more time. Do pop over and visit Linda for yourself, I'm sure you'll enjoy the posts, and don't forget to tell her that I sent you.
I'm a forty eight year old mum of two and I live on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. I've been married to Mick for twenty six years and we have a son, Daniel, who's twenty two and a daughter, Eleanor, who's eighteen. I gave up work in 2010 and now have more time to indulge in my hobbies of knitting, crochet and gardening. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow along with my adventures.
