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.

pjosephharris it should be fine, so long as you don't let it dry out in summer. I would dig in some blood, fish and bone fertiliser and add a thick mulch of potting compost to stop weeds and keep moisture in.

Great news Lilly P, congratulations!


We've had a busy day, went to Somerleyton House and Garden, then to Lowestoft, then Harleston, then to the Fox and Goose in Fressingfield for a fabulous meal. Our friends are going tomorrow.

We went to the antiques quarter of Norwich today, 2 huge places selling loads of things. I bought 7 Willow pattern bowls for a pound each and 2 framed prints, 8 pounds each. We stopped to look round a small town on the way home and had tea in a tea shop.


Was shocked by the behavior of Clari and obelixx's mothers. I was lucky with mine.


sleep well in your new bedroom fairy girl.

That's funny - it keeps writing "quote" on my non quote bits.
