The rich autumn colours and wonderful contrasts and textures of The Dell Garden and Foggy Bottom.

HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Hello folks - we're back   We've had a simply lovely day - the gardens were marvellous - soooooo much better than when we went in the spring - and there was only one shower of rain and as luck would have it were were down by the thatched summerhouse in Foggy Bottom, so we sat there and looked at the beautiful vista while listening to the raindrops plip plopping in the pond.

The Under Gardener really liked the gardens as well as the steam engines etc, and a good lunch of home made pasties and chips with good coffee, and later on some ice creams, went down very well indeed 

I took hundreds of photos - I'll post some later - supper's nearly ready ...

Sounds a bit like one of the ichneumon wasps - harmless to us and our gardens.  They parasitise other insects. 

Was it anything like this? 

What did this?

Enriched with bonemeal maybe?

Lovely photos from both of you.  

Amazing rainbows here this morning - sunny spells and showers - think sensible shoes and a waterproof jacket are the order of the day for Bressingham.

We've had our dippy eggs and toastie soldiers for breakfast; all is washed up and a piece of gammon and some veg are in the slow cooker - they'll be ready for this evening's supper. 

Strictly is back!
