Just popped out and pruned the grapevine - that's one job ticked off the winter pruning list. 

Very soon I must:

  • cut the autumn raspberries down
  • prune the gooseberries
  • prune the fig
  • prune some clematis
  • prune the roses
  • cut/restrain some honeysuckles
  • make rhubarb crumble - it's almost ready!!!


East Anglian Snowdrop Walk

Walsingham Abbey is lovely and not very far from us, but I rarely go because whenever I've been at snowdrop time the parking is abysmal - there have been occasions when we've given up and just driven to the coast rather than try to find somewhere to park. 

I could do a Saturday .......... what do people think?

Lily P - yes the wind turbines have a mechanism for slowing them, or reducing torque in strong winds, or even stopping them all together in high winds.  Explanation here otherwise the ones off the north Norfolk coast would take off and be in outer space by now!!! 

BL enjoy your day in London!

I spoke to Wonky last night - looks as if she'll find it difficult to get a weekday off in February - she and her lovely hub may have to do their own mini-walk one weekend.


Iris flowering - is this a problem

I've seen several clumps of dwarf iris flowering in city gardens and on sheltered verges - they're quite early most years , just even more so this year.

Good morning Hazel   G'day Pat

Hazel, hope there's not too much damage and disruption up there - hang onto your hat!  Looks pretty horrid in Scotland

It's pretty gusty and noisy even down here in Norfolk

Keep warm, dry and safe everyone

We had some similar to those where I used to work - the wood pigeons took the cherry-like fruit while they were still green and swelling.
