HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: 24/06/2016 at 09:10

Morning all, sunny here. Looking forward to the rose morning with Dove and Topbird. I didn't manage to get up in time to get my washing into the machine to put it on the line, unlike Dove!


Slept badly as OH snored and wriggled and kept getting up to see how the referendum was going. He's very depressed about it. Apart from the bigger issues it means his pension has gone down as the £ has fallen against the € and his shares have collapsed. He's worrying about his future health care if we stay in France.

Some more photos. We even met the owners and had our photo taken with Alan.

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.

Just been having a catch up on here, what fabulous photos of your lovely gardens. BM your garden is beautiful and Wonky has made so much progress. Lovely rose GWRS.


Thank you for your kind remarks about my gravel bed.


Loved the squirrel story.

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.
