Morning all. Cold, 3°, and gloomy. But the trees are looking pretty in their autumn dresses.

Visiting Wonderful Gardens

Posted: 17/11/2013 at 22:50

I love visiting gardens and we usually manage to see some each time we go to England and buy plants to take home (France). Earlier this year I started a thread with photos of gardens we have visited.

Good to hear from you again, Artjak. Wondered where you'd gone.

That's what I think it could be, too.

Hi Lizzie - did you make it to the Weald and Downland museum?

Yes, we did. It was very quiet as it was a Thursday and they were preparing for a fair at the weekend. Also cold and windy, but very beautiful and interesting. Then watched the programme "Tudor Monastery Farm" on i player, lovely to see it in summer, in action.

Back from visit to England. Lawn very long, but sodden. It's rained until the last 2 days here when it turned cold and frosty. Think we had better weather in Sussex! Snow forecast mid week. Want to plant my tulips, but will have to wait.

Dove, I really agree with what you said. I used to have a smallholding too, not as varied as yours, chickens, ducks, Jersey cows. But we were sentimental about the ducks! Couldn't eat them, but they laid eggs, especially the Khaki Campbells, and I sold them. The girl calves went to market or were sold privately and the boys to the local butcher who had a licence. He was very good, I don't think the calves (not really calves by then, I kept them for over a year) knew anything about their fate. I think they had happy lives.

Your house and garden look lovely, but too far away for me. I think this is genuine and it must be quite upsetting to sell your lovely house and everything. It's not at all like the kitchen ads we get here.

Oh Andy, what a shock, hope you get better quickly. Hope Matty's back gets better soon too.

I haven't swept a single leaf yet. Poured with rain for 3 weeks, now I'm visiting family and friends in England, going home tomorrow and weather forecast is wet again.

Went to Tunbridge Wells yesterday, lunched with friends in a beamy old pub. Don't have pubs in France. Went to a food fair today then lunch in another pub with OH's daughter, SIL and grandchildren and old auntie (95).

Morning all.

Went to "KIng Lear" at Chichester theatre last night. At least seven people died, mostly murdered, gloomy. They did a thunderstorm with real rain and huge claps of thunder, actors were soaked.

Going to Tunbridge Wells today, lunching with friends.

Have a good day everyone.

Morning all. Going out in a minute, Chichester.
