Yes, I enjoyed the bog gardens - the peonies this evening were good too

Now it's time for Winterwatch

It's a shame it was Diarmud Gavin for the wildlife gardens - I'm sorry but I find him so irritating - I'm pretty tolerant most of the time, and there are very few people that irritate me, but DG is one of them

Daily Bird Sightings 2015

Lots of partridges in Norfolk and Suffolk - I can guarantee I'll see several coveys tomorrow on my way down to visit the Aged Ps.  Both the English grey-legged and the French red-legged varieties.  Lovely birds

If you want dry weather read here

Suffolk and Norfolk are among the driest places in the UK - much drier than the south-west

They don't need heat - turn it off.

Have a look here  and see if you think you'd like the area - there's lots of seaside towns and villages along the North Norfolk coast, and lots to do there and inland too - you can vist Pensthorpe one of the homes of Springwatch where there's lots for families to do. 

And the beach at East Runton is the most child-friendly one I know, our family's been enjoying it for generations - lovely soft sand  at the top, then when the tide goes out there are rock pools with crabs and winkles and lovely firm sand for building sand castles and playing ball games.  Then when the tide starts to come in again there's lots of shallow water with a sandy bottom for paddling and splashing in

And the drive from Sheffield to Norfolk really is quite straightforward - I've done it quite a few times - and it doesn't take too long so you have time to stop every so often and let the little ones stretch their legs and get some fresh air.  I suffered from travel-sickness as a child so I know what they're going through

There was a feature on them on Winterwatch last night - fascinating.  Also an amazing feature on a huge number of pied wagtails living on top of a multi storey car park

I've had a lovely hour on the sofa reading my latest RHS magazine - Lots of East Anglian interest - Alan Gray of East Ruston Old Vicarage is now a regular columnist, and Adrian Bloom has a big feature on winter planting - some wonderful photos, and a feature on winter heathers. Verdun, if you haven't got a copy you'll have to get one somehow!

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
