I've put a link to the petition on the foodie forum I'm a member of ....... some of them are keen gardeners   and let's face it, they're all keen on people growing good food for them

I just spotted that Lorna ........ what has Dave Morgan started???  

What I don't get is that in the Telegraph article, the BBC talks about the BBC2 viewer liking sport ... as if no one ever changes a channel

Lovely Chicky

If anyone wants to see our native Pasque flowers in the wild this is the place

http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20140711133551/http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/Images/barnack-leaflet_tcm6-36336.pdf

one of the most special places I've ever been - Pasque flowers, orchids, broomrapes, fireflies and nightingales - and more besides. 

Hope to go there again soon.

Wonky - that sounds exciting - looking forward to the pics

Ma slept most of the time I was there, occasionally opening her eyes and looking at me - I would say hello and smile and she'd smile back and close her eyes again. After a couple of hours or so (I had my knitting with me and Classic FM quietly in the room so it was quite relaxing really) she became a bit restless and started fidgeting for a while then dozing off again. Then staff came in to freshen her up and make sure that she was comfortable, and she woke properly and started chatting to them. It's lovely to see the good relationship she has with them.

Bro is visiting her tomorrow and will then be heading to northern Scotland for 10 days with his daughter her hub and their little ones, to visit her husband's grandparents. Bro asked if he should cancel it, but I've told him to go ahead - you can't put your life on hold just waiting ...  we might still be waiting when we're due to go to Cornwall ... unlikely ...  but as my GP said, my parents are made of tough stuff

Hosta - I've just heard from a friend on the foodie forum - she gave up the booze a while back for health reasons and she's having real problems getting to sleep and then even more problems staying asleep.  It seems like a common problem.  Glad it's improving for you ((hugs)).

Horses, cows and goats will also eat holly if it's not too prickly - they especially like the young leaves. 

The holly in the picture doesn't look like one of the most prickly varieties.

Any horses, cows or goats been wandering past lately?

We're taking each day as it comes here - so I think we should go ahead and arrange something and I'll either make it or I won't.

I've got a Foodie Friend who's also keen on gardening (we swap tomato plants).  She lives near Blickling - anyone mind if she comes along?
