In 1840 Biddulph Grange in Staffordshire, UK was bought by James Bateman. He and his wife were passionate about plants and were rich enough to be able to travel and bring back plants from around the world. He and his wife with the help of an artist friend enlarged and planted out the gardens into different themed areas . Due to the design you cannot see into one area from another so I was constantly surprised by what I found by going through tunnels , walkways or between hedges.
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!
