First time for everything

Thought I'd try my hand at this blogging thing. My garden is always a work in progress - has been a straight ornamental garden, fitted in where the previous owners couldn't think of any landscaping features to add, with beds often filled with builders' rubble; then was a native garden, morphing into a habitat garden, then a basketball practice area, now is on the way to being a food garden, but with plenty of flowers, preferably perennials, not necessarily native.
