Hi Amanda, I'm from Suffolk but now we're up in Norfolk. 

We saw a beautiful hornet in Norfolk yesterday when we had lunch by the river.

Foxglove Seedlings

They look like foxglove seedlings to me. 

I'd let them grow away now, then they'll die down.  When they reappear in the spring plant them where you want them and enjoy

I've got several varieties of Clematis alpina on my tall northfacing fence and they've all been very successful - they're much more tolerant of colder shadier conditions than most clematis http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/Clematis-alpina/

Ooooh huuuuuuuuuuuuge Dusty fan here

Just got the last green tomatoes picked and indoors on big meat platters on the sideboard.  We've had way more tomatoes this year than other years, despite slightly fewer plants.  Most successful have been the Roma plum tomatoes - a really heavy crop of good cooking toms.

I just got the bedlinen in off the line too, faint spits of rain.  The thing is I didn't wash my hands after picking the tomatoes before I got the bedlinen in - result ... green fingermarks on corners of duvet cover
