About Me
I am a retired academic (LSE) and have lived in the de Beauvoir area for the past 25 years. I have a strong interest in gardening, and open my back garden to the public in June, on a Sunday, under the National Gardens Scheme. I also have an allotment, and when the growing season permits, enjoy travelling, having visited all 7 continents. I am American and return home each year for Thanksgiving. I have enjoyed having people of various nationalities staying in the house and kept in touch with many of them.
