My Garden

From October to December 2012 I was homeless, and had spent the previous six years in temporary, one-roomed accommodation. Just before Christmas in 2012 I moved into a unit with a little garden. I have dug up the whole back yard and turned it into a vegetable garden. I never really imagined being a gardener, but it is a source of great satisfaction - and excellent therapy.

 
As well as a vegetable garden I seemed to have accumulated many suculents and cacti, from Paul's garden up at Blackwood. Here is a selection of the cacti, especially the ones that bloomed last November. It would be nice to have a better camera before they flower again at the end of this year.
