We are Lindsay Nixon and David Low. We live in a rural corner of South West France, where we set up our Ironwork, Artist /Blacksmithing, Landscaping and plant business, ‘Ironwood Motif’ in 2005 http://www.ironwoodmotif.com We grow and sell plants too. Plants that thrive in the particularly harsh conditions here on ‘Les Causses du Quercy’ (limestone plateau) and the Continental climate we experience. We have long, hot, dry summers and cold winters. We also grow and sell plants that are bee friendly because we have bees and any small gesture we can make to help them is a gesture well made. We write about our own garden, our experiences in that garden, using the produce from that garden. We write about how we try to waste as little as possible, to re-use, to swap, exchange and share and about anything else of interest that we observe in nature at large around us.
