When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

I pruned mine today. It’s a lethal plant to prune. 😳

I’m sure that’s why the birds love it so much. It will be a while before I can do anything to mine. It’s full of nests: sparrows, blackbirds and possibly goldfinch I think @suerichards

And it’s about 15’ high! In the right place it’s a fantastic plant @Keely

@awomanonabike I love your contributions here! Incidentally I must be one of the few people who keeps a garden blog and a bike blog! Happy cycling.

Ah thank you so much for asking! Yes, I've been very quiet here and on other social media since April. But the good news is I'm back!

I’m glad to hear all is well. When you disappeared from Strava too I started to worry... Welcome back! @patburke58
