    Another great garden to visit in Norfolk is the National Trust's Felbrigg Hall walled garden.

    A lavatera I was particularly fond of...

    The dove house used to hold hundreds of doves, kept for their eggs and meat...

    We went to Felbrigg last September, one of the best walled gardens. Houghton Hall is another huge and lovely one. I posted photos on GW then.

    Whilst in Norfolk we also paid Hindringham Hall a visit http://www.hindringhamhall.org/the-gardens/ . Well worth  a visit.

    Haven't had time for Hindringham this time, but thank you for telling us about it.

    We went to The Old Vicarage at East Ruston on Friday. Have been before, last year in June, different flowers out now.

    Photo with all the verbena is beautiful BL.

    Is that where you met the elderly owner/gardener on your last visit?

    It's lovely to see photos of those Norfolk gardens - so beautiful!  Thank you.

    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.

    Joyce, we did meet the owner, not that old, on our last visit, but not this time.

    Went to Giverny, Monet's garden yesterday, beautiful, will have lots of photos when I've sorted them.

    lovely BL.  Green and serene with splashes of colour which is what I like in a garden.
