I lived on a small island in the South China Sea with a husband, two sons and a scruffy dog and now I live in London which is in a slightly larger small island with a scruffy husband two large boys and a very fluffy dog.

Living in a sub tropical climate means that I can have what are considered house plants in more temperate climates grow in wild abundance all around my garden. However the same is true in reverse and plants that I love in the UK like nasturtiums, lavender and hydrangeas don't usually do so well. In fact they roll over and die at the first whiff of humidity, usually.
This year though we are having a very mild spring and summer and my hydrangea is hanging on in there. Its still only teeny, and will probably never be a great huge bush like the ones I remember when I was small and on holiday in Wales, but I'm quite proud of it.
