Visit to the Old Vicarage Gardens, East Ruston, Norfolk. 19/07/14

Back home, Campari & soda taken and feet (and swollen ankles) up - what a truly lovely day   Snoodle and Topbird were lovely and it felt as if we'd known them for ages, and it was great to see old friends Nut, Artjak and Panda.

The only fly in the ointment was the newly charged batteries I'd put in the camera hadn't held their charge - must need new batteries   So thank goodness some of the others had fully charged cameras and took loads of pics.  Some lovely ones from Artjak already 

After cake, ice cream and pots of tea at the gardens and the mandatory perusal and purchase of plants, Panda, Snoodle and I went to a great local pub recommended by Snoodle and had a drink or three and a lovely meal - consequently I've only just put Panda on the train and arrived home, totally bushed and very happy

That makes the Leopard slug even more of a possibility.

I think they're just trying to live down their reputation for being 'easy'

Showered, dressed, brushed my hair, recycling bins done, frogs shepherded along the path away from the road, plants packed, beach towel and sun hat at the ready, camera batteries charged, water bottle found .......................... anything else I need to do or can I sit down and have a coffee?

It was very good indeed - there's a small piece left - OH brought it home from the farm shop - think it was a Taster - I wonder if they'll stock it regularly ........
