BL - which bit of Suffolk do you need B&Bs in?  I used to live in Mid Suffolk (Framlingham/Halesworth area) and have family in and know Suffolk Coastal (from Southwold down the coast to Aldeburgh/Orford area well - if you need some suggestions for those areas PM me

Get if off your chest.

Fingers crossed - that all sounds very hopeful

You could be Lizzie's Busy Lizzie

Back from visiting Aged Ps - both quite well, Ma not too muddled, Pa just old and tired.  I left them to get on with their Shepherd's Pie and trifle and visited son - think he had a housework blitz when I phoned and said I was coming - everything very clean and shiny and a smell of polish! LOL

Pdoc, sorry your greenhouse wasn't insured   When we moved here I was determined to have one, but there's nowhere to put one really - can't go under the ash trees as they drop twigs, and anyway it'd go all green, and anywhere else would just be all wrong - so now I've just got a little wooden mini-greenhouse.  It does mean that I can't go and potter in it when the weather's bad and I don't have a potting bench etc, but I do my potting up on sunny days on the table on the terrace - OH can have his studio doors slid back and bring the coffee or Sauv. blanc out to me while I'm potting - every cloud has a silver lining

Could Panda's silvery leaved foliage plant be Helichrysum petiolare?

Often used for bedding and pots so it would go with the others.

fragrant flowers

The most fragrant flower I know is the Mignonette (Reseda odorata) - at one time grown in every village cottage garden - I remember walking past a garden and smelling it as a child.  Not the most showy of flowers, but it can perfume a whole garden, and it's a British native so good for insects.   This thread has reminded me and I shall order some seeds
