I am an English woman of indeterminate age, happily living out the rest of my days in Ariège in the French Pyrenees, where I am at war with half a hectare of pasture land. I am trying to turn it into a wonderful garden. It lacks imagination and just wants to be a field. There is also a barn which I would like to be a house but so far it is still a barn, so I am living in the potting shed. When not gardening I like to take photographs, read, cook, make preserves and learn Italian. I am surgically connected to my iPhone.
