Welcome to brimfields.com, thank you for visiting.
This is my new blog covering interests in The Life of Brian.
The pages, The Garden and Photography, explain more about my interests and level of “Expertise”.
Photography has always interested me, (I think it was the lifestyle of Patrick Lichfield that appealed to me!) I began to develop my interest in visiting gardens as a member of the Black Pear Gardening Club and privately. These visits provide pictures I can use on the club website, my original blog Our Garden@19 and in my gardening presentations.
This is one of my favourite photographs, posted in Raindrops under Plantlife.
I have always gardened to some extent. When growing up, my parents and grandparents, who lived next door, both had a large traditional garden with vegetables, flowers, orchard, chickens and bees. From an early age, my brother and I were given a small plot to look after and I still remember my pleasure when my nasturtiums, covered with flowers, spread everywhere.
My family is the most important feature in The Life of Brian. Irene and I have two daughters and two granddaughters. You can read more about them on the Garden page under The Garden Team.
This is my favourite wildlife picture so far, posted in feeding time under wildlife.
When I retired, I worked as a Freelance Gardener for a few select clients, (i.e. desperate), now retired.
I am a founder member of the Black Pear Gardening Club, group co-ordinator for the Hanley Swan NGS open gardens and county social media volunteer for the Worcestershire NGS. I love wildlife (except slugs), enjoy Jazz, Red wine Rioja (if your asking), Lapsang Souchong tea, (Ditto) Photography, Gardening and Yoga ( It helps with balance especially after the Rioja! )
I hope you enjoy reading brimfields.com please leave comments, one of the joys of blogging is the communication you have with fellow bloggers. I will reply as soon as I can.
