Gardens we have visited 2016

Posted: 26/07/2016 at 17:42


We are going around the Norfolk gardens, on and off, when we are there, this year. We went to Somerleyton Hall in June, interesting house, lovely white garden that they use for weddings, but on the whole I was a bit disappointed, not really a gardener's garden, more a park. The leaflet they gave out said various bits were due to be re-planted in 2015 but they obviously hadn't been.

Figs

My fig tree is now 3 years old, planted in the ground against a wall and hasn't had fruit since I bought it when it had 3 figs. A lot of fig trees here in France are planted in the ground and have loads of fruit, my son's did and he never fed or watered his. Mine is now 2 - 3 times the size of both yours.

Oh dear, what's happened in France? We've come back from 5th Anniversary lunch in a pretty local town, jam packed with English and Dutch tourists. Good lunch. Off to Google to find out.

We are going to a restaurant by a river in a local town for lunch for our 5th anniversary. Actually it was on the 16th and we both forgot!

I was going to say "go to bed", then I saw you wrote that at 18.37!


Well, I'm off to bed, clean sheets, had a shower. Nighties.

Yviestevie, Chicky and I both posted that link with the gardens you visited on page 1 here.


I love Hidcote and Kiftsgate, but I just prefer Hidcote. My SIL used to live near there.

Beautiful Yviestevie, lovely colours.


I like orange, but then I like peach too, love pinks and blues. In fact, I like all colours, so long as they grow and can put up with a bit of heat and drought in summer and cold, rain and snow in winter. 'Cos that's what they'll get in Dordogne. And poor, clay, limestone soil (but I have improved it).

Lovely aym, I think the blue one is Echium Blue Bedder. I grew it a couple of years ago.
