Did anyone go on the steam train around the Nursery garden at Bressingham? We did, it was all rather sad. There were acres of polytunnels and fields where they grew plants and it's all empty (apart from weeds) and neglected. They are waiting for a new tenant.

We went to son No 2's for lunch today, so I got to see my 2 baby grandsons.

Then a friend called round after we got home.

Glad you all enjoyed it. We went on the 10th July and had a lovely day, weather was warm and sunny. We'd met Dove the day before in a Suffolk pub. I hope you don't mind if I put some photos here too. I also went on the carousel, OH took the photo from the horse in front.

Well done Nut. I was thinking more on the lines of autumn leaf colour.

Me too. As Verdun likes grasses have looked up masses and not one has an Irish County name.

The only Irish county that I can think of that is plantable is Cork, but Cork is a big county. Unless it's an anagram as well and I'm hopeless at anagrams.

Willow is commonly used in Holland and aspirin comes from willow, which is why I chose it. But in Scotland, where Bushman comes from, alder or Scottish birch is used more commonly.

Newbie alert!

Hello Dave. That's a huge difference already.
