Alan’s two passions are watercolour painting and gardening. Following Alan’s retirement in 2008, his wife suggested that he kept a gardening diary to record his experiences in the garden. In 2014 he published his first book, ‘Retiring to the Garden – Year One’. He then went on to capture the changing seasons, animals, birds and the successes and failures of being a gardener in his Norfolk garden for another year, hence this book. This book, ‘Retiring to Our Garden – Year Two’, is full of interesting and informative information supported by numerous colour illustrations to give the reader an insight into how the gardening seasons influence the development of a garden.
