Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Botanical gardens in Quito

 Thank you to all those who have kindly taken the time to comment on my blog and I apologise for not reciprocating. My computer is causing me all kinds of difficulties at the moment. I am not able to post any new photos but I found this post that I hadn't  published. I always try to visit Botanical Gardens as I wander around and in Quito it was no different. On the way back from the cable car we stopped off at the Jardin Botanico. It was a very peaceful area of different gardens showing the indigenous plants and also some of the vegetables that are grown here. It is always interesting to see how many recognisable plants you can find.
