I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself.
Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo...
I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years.
My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.
This figtree from Istria, Croatia has not got very much space for growing... and it still grows - and bears fruit! Figtrees grew like weed down there.
Other trees to be found frequently are olive trees.
The silvergrey leaves contrasted beautifully to the red soil. In the island of Krk we even camped in an old olive plantation. I love the silvergrey foliage!
It is great fun to travel!
And to come home.
