Garden Visits 2017

Posted: 19/09/2017 at 22:18

We went to Bressingham Gardens earlier this month, beginning to look autumnal but quite a lot was still in flower.

We had smoked cooked trout for lunch with my cousin, from the smokehouse in her village, it was yummy. Cousin had made several lovely salads to go with it. We went for a walk after lunch. Ended up staying until after 6pm.

Thank you for the birthday wish, LG.

I think you are often busier than me, Obelixx!

Shall go and post some photos on the gardens we have visited thread, if I can find it.

Morning all.

Grey sky here. I thought it was supposed to be sunny, want to put our king size duvet cover on the line.

Going to the north Norfolk coast today to see my mother's youngest cousin.

Thanks for your PM Topbird, have replied.

I watched Liar, find it quite gripping. OH had a sofa nap, not me.

We are just back from Bury St. Edmunds - again. Would have rung Topbird if I'd had her number! Went to the bank in Diss then OH suggested going back to Bury, we went on Saturday for my birthday lunch, to have more of a look around.

On Saturday I'd posted on the birthday thread -  "OH took me out to lunch in Bury Saint Edmunds, fabulous French restaurant (bit home from home!), http://www.maisonbleue.co.uk/   Then to Sea Salt to buy me a pullover he liked the look of, I tried it on, perfect then they told us their tills had gone down and no one could buy anything"

We went to Sea Salt to find they had put aside the jumper, and another I'd tried on that was in the sales, just in case we came back. They gave us a 10% discount for the bother of coming back

Then we looked at the Cathedral and the gardens behind it  and we had some lunch in a pub which had a lovely beer called "The Mighty Moose"!

Hope your neck is better soon, Fairy.

We had a delicious Harvest Festival lunch.

Given in and taken the washing, sheets and towels, off the line where it's been for 2 days. Wetter than ever, now in the machine being rinsed and spun then will have a dry in the machine, washer/dryer, but it never gets properly dry so it will all have to sit on the bannister rail on the landing.

Sick rose

Roses resist disease better when they are healthy. I think your rose needs planting as soon as possible. The leaves look a bit yellow which can mean it's hungry. Have you fed it while it's been in it's pot? It's too late to feed now though. Do as Borderline says and feed it in the spring. Keep it watered the first year. If it shows any sign of becoming ill again next year then spray it with a fungicide.

Do you need a Photobucket account to see the photos? I had one but then they changed it and I think you have to pay so I let my account lapse. Also, when I'm in France the Internet is usually too bad to use it. I can now see the small photos but if I click on one I get loads of ads and I can't get rid of them.

Hope the weather stays good for your planting PP.

I would love to go to Rome, never been. Matter of finding the right moment, time, house sitter.

Going to the Harvest Lunch in the village church today. Then to Dunelm to pick up some fabric I ordered, hadn't realised they are open on Sundays.
