Hello folks back from sunny Southwold! The place was packed so following our meeting with vicar and visit to Ma we didn't even try to get a table for lunch but headed inland a bit and had a very fine lunch here http://www.shadingfieldfox.co.uk/ . The countryside was beautiful, hedgerows full of wild cherry blossom and primroses, and the first oilseed rape flowers just beginning to open.
I see that most of you have been out in your gardens Daughter tells me we have a fortnight of sunshine and high temperatures coming soon - yippee!!! She's been to Homebase - not only has she the birthday present of new spade, fork, hand tools and secateurs that we gave her, but her lovely hubby has bought her a new lawn mower and she's spent some more birthday money on a Braeburn appletree, a bush rose and a rhododendron. Their neighbours have several apple trees so she's hopeful that one of them will be in the right pollination group, but to be on the safe side she'd like a Golden Hornet crab apple as we had one in the garden when she was a little girl - I'll have to keep my eyes open for one next autumn
