Morning all.

Storm in the night woke me and I never got back to sleep, so irritable this morning.

Good luck today Dove.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Evening all.

Thoroughly cold and wet day here, but amazing it was still light at 8 pm.

So bored today I did some paper work. Now got a bottle of red open and onto the sofa till bed.

Do you mean Ivy?

Crow or raven?

The old saying is: if you see a rook by itself; it is a crow, and if you see a group of crows together; they are rooks.

Crow or raven?

Yes, looks like a rook to me. Ravens are huge and tend to live around cliffs or mountains.

Fox glove plugs

Most foxgloves are biennial, so form leaves first year, then flower second year, and then die.

There are however some lovely perennial forms. I grow D. ferruginea, which has browny yellow flowers [ and is much prettier than I have described it ] D. lutea is alsdo lovely.

Morning all.

Wet and windy here, so no gardening today.

Got an order from Crocus, to come tomorrow, so that is always exciting, even if it does take several hours to unravel their very secure packing.

Have a good day everyone.

Dove, we ate at the White Horse, which I think was in Brancaster and a lovely posh fish and chip place in Cromer [ ? No 1 Cromer] Had a wonderful pigeon and foie gras dish [ sorry I know some people will be offended by that, and I can't justify it, but I love it ]. Also had magnificent Skate wings.

Spent nearly all the time between Titchwell and Cley reserves, with some time in Cromer and Wells Next the Sea.
