Fidget, glad you got back home ok.    It was great to see you!  Folks, that's quite some sparkler she has on her finger!

Love snakes - was it a grass snake?  Great grass snake habitat around there

Great photos - thanks folks! Wonderful plant associations.    Some beautiful eryngiums and grasses especially.

Sounds as if you had a fab day. 

It is the plant associations that really stand out.

Verdun, you have to come up here and pay Bressingham a visit some time - you really would love it  - East Anglians don't bite ........... well, not very often

And this really is the best time of year to see Bressingham - it's probably the best I've ever seen it

Good morning all

Wet here at the moment, but brightening in the west - we may have a visitor for a few days later in the week, but we're not sure yet ... she's 13 and has yet to make up her mind whether she wants to visit her uncle and aunt or stay home and plague her mum a bit more!

But that's very subjective - not everyone has the same tastes and preferences.

It gives the impression that everyone else's garden should conform to your taste and not that of the owner of the land

Hosta - as someone who has had 'a knee' for quite a few years now - look after it!!!  I didn't look after mine

Lyn, doesn't anyone go ferreting around your way?  that's the best way to deal with them
