Sixty-something. Mother of 3, Grandmother of 4. I like gardening, photography, writing, reading and life in general. I’m also into genealogy and scrapbooking.

I was born in London and moved to the USA in 1973. I still miss home but will probably never go back. Past interests include dancing, theater, fencing, painting and floral arranging.

  1. Love the picture! I wish I had the knack of gardening. Maybe someday it will click for me. Generally things die in my care (only plants, thank the Lord). What an interesting life you’ve had! I look forward to reading more!

  2. Hi Sue, thanks for stopping by my blog http://reflectionsofchina.wordpress.com/ and for the like, it is appreciated 🙂 You have some fantastic images here on your site..the floral garden shots make me miss the UK, we have no garden here in China just a balcony in our apartment. The greenery and lanscape of England is what i miss sometimes. Thanks and Regards Mark

    • Thanks, Mark! I miss the English countryside too, along with English pubs and cricket. Life must be very different in China. Your pictures are most interesting and I look forward to following your blog.

  6. Hello there, and thank you for finding my blog http://www.mummydrinkstea.com, and for becoming a follower! I love how you still think of yourself as English, despite such a long time away. I’m sure the topic of cricket will come up over the summer! The bluebells send their love across the pond!

  7. Sue – as a transplant to Florida from New England, I always yearn for spring gardens this time of year. I want to smell lilacs, force forsythia, and see tulips and iris and daffodils . . . . it’s all tradoffs, isn’t it. And thanks for stopping by.

    • Thank you for visiting! People tell me I should go back there for a visit to cure me of my homesickness but I think it’s a bit too late now. Still I would like to have seen it one more time.

  15. G’day Sue, We have a few things in common you and I, age, birth place, I am a Yorkshire lass, but I went to the southern hemisphere, and many similar interests. Not many of our “vintage years” in the blogosphere…

  21. Americans gain is our loss. There is still nothing to beat England in springtime, or in Autumn. ”Seasons of mists….” I can see you still hanker for the English perrenial bourder a la Gertrude Jeychle.take your imagination to the US.
