Winter Walk at East Ruston Old Vicarage

Glad you had a lovely visit - it really is a beautiful garden and it is interesting to follow its development. 

Living locally I try to visit several times a year as unlike some gardens, it has something for all seasons. 

The plant sales and scones are good too

G'day Pat ... Pheasants lurk at the side of the road here and then decide to scuttle across as we drive past ... not as bad as kangaroos!

So would mine - and the farm shop sells wonderful locally made ice cream. Last year a customers child managed to turn the switch for the ice cream freezer off and all the contents softened too much to be sold. They refroze them and shared them out among any staff who wanted it ... Guess who had the lions share?

Don't tell my OH!  He'll be on your doorstep in five minutes. He's a firm believer in the health benefits of large helpings of ice cream !

There's a few slices left folks ... help yourselves ... just make sure you leave some for OH ... he hasn't had any yet and he's stuffed full of schnitzel with noodles at the moment ... he'll have to wait a bit ... 

Could anyone identify this shrub?

Pansy ((hugs)) I'm so sorry you're being faced with such tough stuff at the moment. 

I hope your love of plants helps to give your life meaning, as mine has for me at the grimmest of times.

I think you've earned a big slice Wonky! 

Is it really a problem?

The reason you see old pictures of farmhands with binder twine around the bottoms of their trouser legs was to stop the rats "runnin' up 'em"
