About me

Industry Arts
Occupation jill of all trades
Location St. Lucy, Barbados
Introduction a self opinionated individual who speaks her mind on things that are important to her. I am Helen and I live in the north of Barbados in an old house that dates back to the early 1800's or more. I have been frantically gardening on 2.3 acres since 1996. I am married to a sweet guy called Chuck and we are the proud parents of a daughter, seven dogs and two lovebirds. My hubby is a retired teacher from Miami Florida and a wonderful human being. I was born on the island of Grenada and lived and attended Primary school in Trinidad and Tobago and later moved to Barbados in 1967 where I spent my adult years. I love to cook for company and adore a fusion of various cuisines. I speak some french with some degree of fluency having studied Pattern making in Paris many many moons ago. I work as a part time water garden consultant and my husband and I grow water lilies.
