Wonky, your Mum knows about our Suffolk visit and I'm hoping to meet her. We are going to Beth Chatto, Hyde Hall, Bressingham, among others. First staying near Beccles, then further South. My grandparents used to live in Southwold so we had family holidays there.

DD, have replied to your email.

Been tired this afternoon, watched Escape to the Country (Suffolk, going to Suffolk in July) and fell asleep. Meant to do weeding in veggie garden when we got back from shopping. Also meant to take lawnmower to be repaired as it won't start, the one OH uses for banks and fiddly bits. Have to wait til tomorrow.

New York wasn't too hot as they'd just had a heatwave followed by storms, but it started getting hotter just before we left. It was interesting and there were some highlights, such as OH's concert and the gala dinner after it, the cruise on the Hudson River to the harbour with the famous NY views, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park. Otherwise it was noisy, dirty, crowded and claustrophobic! I would hate to live there.

The garden has grown a lot. I've been picking and freezing broad beans and raspberries.

They don't right themselves on my laptop. I would love Dacha to turn them! Apology accepted Dacha, when written, things sound different!

That blue flower is phacelia, RB, lasts a long time in a vase and can be used as green manure. See
