χαίρω πολύ (pleased to meet you)

Hello! γεια σας! 

I’m Lindsay, a first time blogger and adventurer, figuring life out one growing season at a time. The Greek Garden is an exploration of things I find in the periphery of my mind in the jumble of modern life;  a heartfelt love for Greece and her people, an off-beat travelogue, a sense of bookish wonder at the world, a spoonful of tasty food and a shovelful of gardening. It started off as a place to record the growing season in my SE English garden – some of my best trials and tribulations of growing are potted here.

Life isn’t static.  Any opportunity you can create to make dreams turn into reality are worth a risk. That’s why I’m now spending more time between the UK and Greece with my partner-in-crime, G.

A balance that involves a wonderful gardening charity, a mix of freelance comms projects over at lbford.com and other innovative ways to live/work. With this trade-off, life is more minimalist and (hopefully) less complex.

If you are interested in finding more about the Cycladic Island of Syros I like to hang out on, or want to chat about projects, get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

Lindsay

 

Welcome to the Greek garden – a place to slow down, tread lightly and find a little kefi…Opa!
