Motored over to Ely today to lunch with Ann's brothers and their wives, at our usual place, the Fire Engine house. I love the way, when I order 'pigeon casserole' I get a complete wood pigeon.  By the way Maggie, the flower above is on the bush 'Golden Celebration' that you gave us for our golden wedding anniversary last year. It has survived the winter well, and is now full of bud. It's a lovely rose, thank you, and, as you can see, the flowers are a beautiful golden colour.

The house above was more or less derelict a year or two ago, but is now once again a handsome old Suffolk Manor House.
I think perhaps I'm beginning to get the hang of photographs on blog again. Hope so anyway. Will keep trying.

I think it's going to be a wonderful year for roses, there are so many buds, and they've started blooming early too.

Thank you for the photo of the rose, it is out very early!

I have to say that I think Suffolk must have the most beautiful collection of properties in Britain.

Hi Mag. Yes, I too think that Suffolk has has the most beautiful collection of lovely early buildings in the country. Unfortunately it also has the best collection of loopies to the square yard (well anyway, to the acre) in the country. Oh well, I can comfort meself by the reflection that my presence here improves that figure a little.
