Hello!  My name is Ruth.  I moved to Scotland’s north-east in 2012.  I struggled to settle in here (it is a long way from my homeland, New Zealand, and I find it cold), but after dragging my feet for much too long, I decided to plant a garden.  In the past, growing a garden has revealed all of of mysterious things to me, not least of which about myself.  Here you can read my musings, garden growing and design discoveries, poetry, and more…

Thanks for visiting!
