I live at Shortland, which is on the edge of Hexham Swamp, on the outskirts of Newcastle, New South Wales, which everybody knows is in Australia. To relax I paint in oils, read anything, and enjoy cryptic crosswords. I am interested in ornithology, apiculture, history, all aspects of natural history and plant propagation - mainly herbs.
My teeth are getting long, my sight is getting short, my hearing is getting hard, and my joints are getting stiff. I have two children, eight grandchildren and an ever increasing number of great-grandchildren, two corgi dogs (girls) and a garden full of weeds. My neighbors see my garden as a mess; I see it as valuable habitat! Our garden is the home to lizards, large and small, many species of birds and we are visited by the odd snake.
I am also an old Vindi boy.
