Personal Interests

I enjoy dreaming about and planning for trips to Europe

I'm fond of gardening—both flowers and vegetables—and hope to expand experience into growing heritage vegetable varieties. I have recently planted a number of fruit trees (better described as twigs perhaps) and have great expectations of beautiful trees and sweet produce.
