Florrie Gillanders is a larger than life local lady who writes poetry. I
thought it would be nice to make some space available to her here.
She describes herself thus:
I was born on the 29th of August, 1945, and I was educated at Langholm Academy. I am married with two grown-up daughters and three grand-daughters.
My hobbies are reading, knitting, doing crosswords, and writing poetry. I am also a very keen amateur gardener.
I like to write a mixture of poetry, some funny, some sad - and some comes straight from the imagination. I have often been told I have a very wild imagination, but I write poetry because I like to do it. I hope it gives as much pleasure to anyone who reads it as it gives me to write it.
