Hi! I’m Cathy, originally from the UK, but now living (and gardening!) in Bavaria. I am utterly obsessed with plants and food, and – as you can see – both of these are the main features of this blog.
My rockery is where most of the planting takes place, and the rest of the garden is pretty wild. Encouraging bees, butterflies, other insects and small creatures is a priority, and my garden is totally organic.
Since the end of 2015 my kitchen adventures are vegan, but you will also find some vegetarian recipes on my recipe page. I love using the herbs that grow in my garden in summer, and drying a few for the winter too.
Some of my favourite things:
- pesto made with fresh home-grown basil
- weeding in spring and discovering all my plants re-emerging
- my lovely dog
- the beautiful countryside all around us
- snuggling up in front of our fireplace in winter with a good novel
I am always pleased to hear from my readers, so do leave a comment!
