What's it All About?

Well, it's about as much of My Family, My Friends, My Life and its Events, as I can recall and cram in . . . .
On this website I introduce myself, 'The Toynes', my family and their lives, as well as my life and our photographs from more than 70 years - 40 of them hiding in the shrubbery . . .


FIRST: A Whole Life

The Toynes, My Life, My Family and Our Travels - That's a 'Me & Mine' click.


THEN: A Life in Horticulture

Gardens, Plants, Techniques, Styles, Features, Wildlife - Good & Bad -  and Ideas . . . this is where you'll find my latest photos to look at and use. Yes, USE!

I look forward to reading your comments in the 'About You' (that's 'you' NOT me!) and 'Get In Touch' Sections!

For several years I have been putting together a Family Tree for our Branch of the Toynes in Lincolnshire and elsewhere in the world (I have two children and further offspring in Australia and Glenna has umpteen cousins in America) - However, I must admit to being neither very good nor very consistent in my efforts and have resolved to look elsewhere for information and history than just the Web! Time permitting, I'll put this into practice soon . . .

Glenna's Garden

Glenna's Garden in May

Glenna's garden is wonderful with many different plants and scents, small animals and almost thre ponds! 

. . . The garden is especially impressive when it starts to get warmer and the roses bloom, the lilacs release their fragrance and the berries ripen. That' s when I like to spend as much time as possible in our wonderful garden.

We have turned one part of it into a vegetable garden where we can grow potatoes, carrots, onions, runner beans and other seasonal fruits and vegetables. There's also a small herb garden with coriander, parsley, sage and much more. This patch of green comes with a handy side effect in the kitchen: fresh herbs can spice up any dish.
