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!

Have a Look at the Toyne Family Tree:

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 . . .

About Ours

The best we could do for 'Ours' on our Wedding Day - Glenna's four children and just one of mine. The other two are in Australia!

'We' are Glenna and David Toyne, as you've probably already figured out. We met about twenty-five years ago and eventually got married to combine our two families into, almost certainly, the nicest crowd in the world . . . 

With Glenna's four kids and my three, plus 12 grandchildren between us, that makes a crowd of 24 immediate Family Members when we all get together - which is not as often as either of us would like! 

Pic L-R: Phil & Claire, (Glenna's second son and his wife); Me (DT) and Glenna; Sarah, (Glenna's elder daughter); Marcus (My elder son), Steve & Rachael (Glenna's elder son and his wife)'; and Mike and Beccy (Glenna's younger daughter and her husband)

For these folks and the rest of the Family (and all its branches and antecedents - as far as I have managed to date to 'dig them up'!) - Click this Toyne Family Tree link or highlight, 'copy & paste' the Link below, into your search engine (e.g. Google or Chrome).
