Helen Cronin – The Gardener
I think green fingers must run in my family. Although I never knew my paternal Grandfather, he was a Market Gardener and supplied Convent Garden with produce from his Farm. My father loved gardening, and we spent many happy hours together working in the gardens of the various homes we had, of which there were quite a few – ten to be precise. Sadly, he never got the opportunity to see the gardens I’ve had since I married as he died in 1995, aged just 66.
I have always gardened, ever since I could hold a trowel. I love gardening….and dogs….and reading….and cooking……and craft work….. and photography…………… I am a Polymath. I sip the nectar of my interests by flying from one to t’other whilst juggling everything life throws at me. But gardening really makes my heart sing……….except when I am knee deep in sludgy soggy clay!
I am married to my best friend, sometimes referred to as ‘Old Tim’ and we share our home with two furbabies
Life and Notebooks
The name for this website came from the fact that I love keeping notebooks, and have kept them for all sorts of reasons over the years.
Leaves From My Garden (LFMG) is a play on words being leaves of plants and leaves (pages) from notebooks. I hope that you will find plenty to interest you here in these pages as you learn from my experience, and are encouraged, and inspired, to create your own dream garden
Life isn’t always perfect, and I have good days and bad days. There are creative days and grey days but the Lord Jesus Christ is my Saviour. He sees me through it all and loves me just the same.
