I live in the north of England and my family had a market garden growing mostly lettuce and tomatoes. We rented a shop where I worked for a number of years and we also did flowers for weddings and funerals. After leaving the shop I worked making artificial eyes for patients in the NHS. I like reading, embroidery listening to music and photography. Gardening is also a hobby although my garden is tiny. The holidays that a friend and I take, usually include looking around gardens that are far larger than either of ours.
