(Featured above - Audrey the VFT in her early days! Not a bonsai, no, but read below to find out why Audrey was so important in cultivating my interest in growing all things green!)

When I'm not writing or reading, I'm tending to the various jungle of plants which are gradually taking over my house.

My love for plants probably stems (haha, no pun intended) from my mother's green fingers. She gets it from my Bapcia, who would always be proud to show us her gardens and greenhouse every time we went down to visit her. My sister picked this up when she moved in with her SO - but I had suspected for a long time that she, too, had dreams of possessing the 'green touch'. It was only a matter of time before my 'plant powers' emerged (I hoped).
