Help! I'm stuck in the city....

Hi everyone, I have been reading the forum to prepare me for my escape from city life. Having always had a great love of nature and gardening, I'm not sure how I ended up here for so long!

At the moment I live in a second floor flat in Manchester and I try my best to fill the outside spaces with as many pots and plants as possible. I'm a mature student (in years, possibly not attitude :lol:) studying pattern cutting and design and I am planning to make a go of self employment so I have an income when I get to move to the country.

Maybe I'll see you around, bye for now :iconbiggrin:

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
