Posted: Yesterday at 09:22

Morning all.


We are off to Ely today. There's a concert in the Cathedral this evening and we'll do some looking around the town first.

On a cheerier note - I posted photos of the lovely gardens at East Ruston.

HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Enjoyed looking at Peter Beales roses this morning, good meeting Topbird for the first time.


Feel a bit numbed and in shock about the results. OH is depressed, as an ex-pat it could be hard for him. I have French nationality, so may be easier for me regarding things like health care, but my English  pension is bound to be affected, especially as I receive it in euros. But the bigger question is whether England will remain a well off and important country. My daughter saw on the French news that they are thinking in France that it may become a small, second rate country and other countries may not wish to trade with the English any more.

Morning all, sunny here. Looking forward to the rose morning with Dove and Topbird. I didn't manage to get up in time to get my washing into the machine to put it on the line, unlike Dove!


Slept badly as OH snored and wriggled and kept getting up to see how the referendum was going. He's very depressed about it. Apart from the bigger issues it means his pension has gone down as the £ has fallen against the € and his shares have collapsed. He's worrying about his future health care if we stay in France.

Some more photos. We even met the owners and had our photo taken with Alan.

We went to The Old Vicarage yesterday in Norfolk. It was fabulous. 30 acres of beautiful gardens.

I tried to find this thread using the search the site facility but it didn't come up. Found it by looking back through my posts.


We went to The Old Vicarage, East Ruston, yesterday. Fabulous garden, but I think I'll put it on it's own thread as this one says Sissinghurst, Gt Dixter and Scotney Castle on the top.

We haven't been gallivanting today. But we went for a cup of tea with neighbours who moved in semi opposite to our cottage in Norfolk in April. They are nice and she says she will water my new rambling rose on the front porch.


No need for that at the moment  - we've had loads of rain here today and thunder and lightening this afternoon.


We went to a local supermarket and to Wickes for a manhole cover. I've never been to Wickes, nice kitchens.


Tomorrow Dove, Topbird and I are going to Peter Beales Classic Roses. Happily the forecast is now good, sunny, but I think I'll believe it when I see it!

Evening all. Gosh typing on an iPad shows such tiny writing compared with a lap top!


Our friends left this morning. This afternoon we went to The old Vicarage Grden at East Ruston. Fabulous, such a variety of styles of garden. We met Alan the owner and had our photos taken with him.  He was so friendly. 


OH is using the laptop and I must go and cook.
