I started to write a blog, just for fun, to chart the 6 months to my 60th birthday and called it called “Hurtling towards 60“. Blogging has now become a part of my life and when I hit 60 I amended the title to “Hurtled to 60 and now Beyond“. After 50+ years working, in January 2018 I retired! The blog title was condensed to “Hurtled to 60 – The Retirement Years”.
I have been gardening since a child, so that is a lot of years! I am still learning and all I know has been through trial and error, visiting gardens (especially NGS gardens), reading, social media and lately YouTube videos.
After I retired I left my lovely garden in West Sussex and moved into a flat with a patio in Hampshire. Now, I have an allotment where I’ve made a cottage garden area, wildlife garden and cutting flower patch as well as growing a small amount of vegetables and fruit. My patio is crammed with pots so I have created a garden of sorts outside my patio doors. Lots to keep me busy and lots to blog about.
I hope you enjoy reading the blog, looking at the photos and please visit regularly.
