that I’m doing on A sort of Plot A to Z continues with the letter F.
I started blogging as Flightbuff doing posts about my lifelong interest in aviation, and it wasn’t long before fellow bloggers started calling me Flighty. It’s a name that I gladly adopted and, wherever possible, have used it ever since, along with my now familiar picture.
My mother was a passionate gardener who loved growing flowers, and I was her willing, if not always too helpful, assistant as a young child. I live in a flat and always regretted not having a garden. Taking on the plot has proved to be one of the best things that I could have wished for. Since doing so I’ve grown lots of flowers, which has bought back plenty of fond, if somewhat now faded, memories.
Since taking on the plot my interest in wildlife has increased immeasurably and I do all I can to encourage and nurture it. I think that of all the various creatures that I’ve seen one of the most memorable was young Frog Newton.
Looking back one of the very best aspects of blogging has been all the good friends, long standing to quite recent, that I have become acquainted with. With some I chat on the phone now and again, email regularly and exchange cards and presents. I really couldn’t want for better friends even though I’ve only ever met a couple of you!
