Drum roll… get your pitchforks and hoes ready!

For the fourth consecutive year I’ve entered my blog into the annual A-Z blogging challenge.  From the 1st April to the end of the month, I shall blog each day (except Sundays) using each letter of the alphabet to represent my posts. Themes aren’t compulsory, but I like to use them to help focus my content. In previous years, I’ve done Castles, Cathedrals and Monasteries and Great Houses (see menu bar). This year the history aspect continues and I’m using nature as my foundation rather than stone. People still feature heavily as this is about history and places, but so will other living things. So here it is, my 2019 theme is….


The History of Great Gardens from trees to flowers, water features and landscaping, the designers and patrons. 

Gardens, a living memory of our past!

I hope you’ll join me! Looking forward to reading posts from other blogs too.

    That’s a great theme, wondering if you are presenting gardens from all over the world or one part…all the best for the challenge.
