    Hello,

    I am Saphira which comes from the book Eragon - I really like dragons.

    Diagnosed ASD about 2 years ago at the age of 45. (now 47)

    As well as books I also like my garden and nature. Art and recyling/upcycling is also in my list of interests.

    I have been on other forums but still need to learn the ways of this one as they are all unique, just like us.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    I look forward to getting to know you. (not in a romantic way)

    I agree, it makes it a little easier to slot into somewhere new. I’m a keen gardener too and have recently began hiking, the more remote the better. I got back from the Lake District
    a few weeks ago, and the Cheviots are next!
    Lots of gardening and nature fans here.

    Oh I will enjoy having a chinwag about gardening with anyone.

    I have just learnt to post images so perhaps I will be able to share some on here and swap ideas.

    Hello Southern Discomfort, hows the weather down there?

    It is rather miserable here.

    Hello Peachykeen, pleased to meet you.
    I will post some pics of garden as it grows.
    But as said above - the weather is awful.
    Lets hope for some more sunshine soon.

    Hello Saphira :)

    I’m in Cheshire, it’s been raining on and off for three days straight where I am, I can’t help but see that as a positive for my plants.
    Mild, plenty of water and brief breaks of sunshine.
    What’s not to like? :)
