Lovely day at Oxborough Hall. Wall to wall sunshine, lots of snowdrops seen, good lunch and very large slice of cake consumed and lots and lots of chatting done. Really good to catch up with everyone. Thank you so much to Dove and especially to Nut for the huge donations to my garden plant bank

Got home just before 6 - still just about light and the bats were dancing and the owls a-hooting - perfect day 

I didn't take any photos - too busy chatting  

Maggie - I have a plant for you

Evening All

We've had a lovely day at Oxborough Hall. Yellow weather warning for today for snow came to nothing and we've had wall to wall sunshine instead - absolutely glorious. Lots of snowdrops seen, good lunch and very large slice of cake consumed and lots and lots of chatting done. Really good to catch up with everyone and I've come away with half of Nut's garden in the boot of my car and donations from Dove. Such lovely people 

Think I might have dropped Panda off at the station just in time to miss her train  - sorry Panda.

Got home just before 6 - still just about light and the bats were dancing and the owls a-hooting - perfect day 

Dangerous slippy path when wet

Similar situation here along the north facing side of the house. We are going to lift the slabs, lay weed suppressing membrane & put gravel / shingle on top. Can still go a bit green if left undisturbed for months - but doesn't get slippery and a quick rake makes it look good as new.

Hi Maggie

Sorry you can't make it but don't go standing outside the pub in the morning  - don't need you getting cold if you can't have a bath to warm up.

Via your village is the shortest way to Stowmarket but, if we do have a bit of snow & the roads look to be a bit icy - I might decide to go via Woolpit & the A14 instead. So stay in and keep warm - hope you get the hot water sorted out! 

If I have the plant I'll let you know.

I won't... 

I've about half a dozen small plants for Wonky (or you if you want them) - you might want to bring a box or something to put them in
