Welcome Lizzie - hope you have a good break - and that the troubles are resolved or forgotten by the time you return.  We look set for a fine few days, so you can make the most of the Norfolk countryside.  Colours are beautiful at the moment.

Looking forward to a weekend in the garden train trips for a change

But first, one more day of mining salt required.

See you later peeps 🌞😜🌞🌺🌺🌸🌷

Morning Joyce and Hollie

Enjoy your daughter's visit Joyce - hope she earns her free plants

Only another couple of pitch black mornings til the clocks go back - then we get a short respite.  Its dark by the time I get home now anyway, so the change at the other end of the day won't bother me so much - except at the weekends

Oh dear Hosta - early start indeed.  Still pitch black here, with the owls hooting away, and you will be at work by now

My sorbus tree arrived yesterday - and a beautiful one it is too.  Must pop to the GC at lunchtime to get some tree guards to protect its trunk from marauding bambis.  Think this weekends job will be to get it (and the boxes of daffodil and allium bulbs that are messing up my kitchen) in the ground.

I've been to Barnsdale today
