Oooh thank you Jo   Morning Verdun

My son's birthday today - here's hoping that the tough time he's had over the past couple of years is over and that the sun will shine for him from now on - even if only metaphorically

Thanks Edd and Ex!

I'm told it can't be watered with our very hard water here in Norfolk, should I buy some cheap bottled water or is that a load of old you know what!

Hello Neighbour   No don't water it with our hard Norfolk water!  They don't like lime and hard water will kill it.  Use rainwater - if you haven't got a water but on your downpipe you'll have to get one, but in the meantime stand a bucket or two outside

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Hope iPad/tablet problems have disappeared for those afflicted - I'm on a laptop and haven't noticed any. 

The temperature last night went all the way down to 8.5C and it's up to 13.8C already this morning.

I think Nigel's picked up quite a lot of info along the way ... he's just not as good at sharing it as Nigel is

Bressingham is local to me so I try to go at least a couple of times a year - allow yourself lots of time - both The Dell Garden and Foggy Bottom deserve hours and hours of your time, and then you'll need to go to the café for ice creams and a ride on the wonderful vintage gallopers

 A group of us went to Bressingham earlier in the year - I'll see if I can find the thread with the photos ...

Lee, you don't have to convince Verdun - he's one of Adrian Bloom's biggest fans.

I love visiting Bressingham Gardens
