Outside the Backdoor is a series of musings about my garden, its plants, wildlife and challenges. Outside my backdoor in southwest London is a very average suburban garden that is anything but average! About 100 feet long and 50 feet wide (in places!), we stretch towards the railway line which means we’re not overlooked – what a luxury in London! We share the garden with three Norwegian Forest Cats which also poses a few logistical challenges.
Outside the Backdoor as a concept came into being when I needed to fill pages in my Parish Magazine (St Stephen’s Church, Hounslow) and I’ve now been producing a monthly column for ten years. I’ve decided that it’s now time to share with the wider world – I hope you enjoy!
PS. Fortunately my husband is a decent photographer so I’m able to rely on him capturing the seasons.
