Blog Of The Month - May
This year, I'm dedicating a post each month to Blog Of The Month. This is 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.
May's Blog Of The Month is Dig The Outside. This is another blog which hails from Yorkshire, Anna doesn't live very far from me, in fact, she's just over the other side of Leeds.
The blog was born in the latter months of last year, when Anna's first post gave us some background on her life up to then, where her passion for gardening came from, and what her aspirations for the future are.
As well as regular updates on her own allotment, Anna enjoys 'snooping around' her parent's allotment in Lancashire, which she regularly features on her blog. She also takes us on outings. There was a recent bloggers meet at Great Dixter which she attended and followed up with a wonderful post. Having never been to Great Dixter myself, I thoroughly enjoyed reading all about it, and hearing Anna's enthusiasm for the place shining through.
Adam, Anna's husband, also features on the blog. It seems he can turn a piece of wood in to almost anything, and actually built Anna's greenhouse from scratch.
Anna is a passionate gardener, and this shines through in every post she writes. If you haven't yet discovered Dig The Outside, do pop along and have a read for yourself, and don't forget to tell Anna 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.
