Dove, I think you just made the announcement!!

Weather is the same as Dove's, we aren't that far from her. Going to different B & B today in Dedham Vale. Will see Beth Chatto's garden while we are there.

Have a lovely trip punkdoc, I'm sure you will remember all you need to.

Bressingham Gardens were fabulous, loads out and lots of colour, it was WOW and WOW round every corner. We went on each of the 2 steam trains too. One went past Alan Blooms old nurseries, which were huge and now falling into dereliction, sad. They are looking for a tenant. I bought arose, "Lady of Shallott" and a square lead look pot to put her in in the garden centre next door. Went for a wander in Diss afterwards, lovely little town.

Going to south Suffolk tomorrow.

The Achillea could be "Terracotta".

The climber with the white star flowers is Trachelospermum Jasminoides or Star Jasmine.

The last one with purple spikes is Veronicastrum.

I think kleipieper has got the others.

I really enjoyed meeting Dove, she's so easy to talk to. OH was impressed with the pub! We both like them, don't have them in France.

After we'd been to the village church we went to Wootten's. I bought a red Helenium and geranium Orion (after reading reports from Verdun). They had Roscoeas, but the nursery lady said it wouldn't be happy in Dordogne.

Been to another pub, ate too much (again!) and we're now back at the B&B for an early night.

Morning all.

We are going to Southwold too before meeting you, Dove.

Blackbirds will be enjoying the rest of my blueberries while we are away, Verdun. They love them.

It was a rather gloomy day today with spots of rain and poured later in the afternoon so instead of visiting Bressingham Gardens (we'll do that on Friday) we went to Norwich, which we liked, great market and lovely cathedral. Then had a quick look at a damp Southwold and saw my grandmother's old house which seems to be having major works done to it.

Look forward to meeting Dove tomorrow. Hope we aren't late, as we don't know how long it takes to get to places, relying on TomTom.
