Hello, I’m Gemma! And gemmagarner.com is my baby.

I live a rural life in South Africa with my husband. We are lucky to live where we do and enjoy exploring the countryside surrounding our home by bike or on foot. If we can make a pit stop at a country pub for lunch, even better.

The rest of my time is spent cooking good food, maintaining our allotment and home garden, working on craft projects, photography, watching films and formulating zombie survival strategies (just in case!).

Further away from home I enjoy hiking and travelling. There are so many places I would like to visit in the world but I have a soft spot for Nordic countries. I fell in love with the mountains surrounding Bergen whilst on holiday in Norway.

I hope that you enjoy my blog!
