Daughter's offer on house has been accepted! They are signing the first contract next week.

I saw the article on the news about the tumble weed as well, it looks very fluffy and had filled someone's garage and front garden.

I think Edd's rant on the previous page was about Sutton Bank in North Yorkshire. It's between where my uncle and an old school friend live so I have driven up and down it several times, lovely views. But if it were in France there wouldn't be much fuss about it, there are many steeper roads in the various mountain ranges without so many warning signs. No caravans allowed on Sutton Bank, but lorries are allowed and they can cause traffic jams.

What about a Malvern Hills rambling rose? It repeat flowers and is slightly scented. I have one, it doesn't grow as huge as some ramblers.

Glad the weather was good, blue sky looks pretty.

Glad the snowdrop people had a good day.

I had a lovely lunch with daughter, think KEF asked where, it was at her house. Their house is rented, they have been house hunting, daughter took me to see the outside of a house that they've made an offer on, looked lovely.

Sorry Lyn's Dad is feeling so weak, he sounds a lovely person and Lyn is great the way she has looked after both her parents.

Have fun everyone. I hope I can join you for an outing one day.

Do I need a climber or a rambler?

Have a look at this page from David Austin roses. 4 repeat flowering ramblers. I have Malvern Hills and a friend of mine has Snow Goose, both lovely. There are 2 pink ones there too, I haven't got them but if they are like the other two they will be fine.


I've found it!

Well done B3, glad you found it.

The weather was awful here while we were away, wind and rain. The greengage tree that has been leaning has finally snapped. I'd made a bed around it. If I didn't feel so tired I'd start dealing with it. Feel like I'm wound up in a cobweb. Fell over going upstairs and now right middle finger is swollen and the knee that was already a bit arthritic hurts. Left middle finger was already swollen from arthritis.

Going to lunch with daughter tomorrow. OH says he'll deal with the tree, but there are 3 clematis winding through it.

Just read back, what a lot.

Dove said "Hosta - Mickfield Hostas is on the road between here and Wonky's place - when you bring your OH up here to Norfolk to visit the Old Vicarage at East Ruston, in order to get home you have to travel past Bressingham Gardens, Mickfield Hostas and Wonky's Award Winning Garden on your way to Beth Chatto's place."

When is Hosta coming to Norfolk? Our cottage is 15 mins from Bressingham. I must look up Mickfield Hostas. And, of course, Wonky's Award Winning Garden! Hope it has a good website and the entrance isn't too expensive
